South Wales DMU Formations – August 1987

Gary Roberts has supplied these formations of first generation DMU’s allocated to Swansea Landore and Cardiff Canton depots as of August 1987. This is to compliment the “Valley Lines Day Ranger” article. The information was extracted from the enthusiast press of the period.

At this point there were only a few Class 108's allocated to the area. But many more were to follow in the coming months, mainly to replace asbestos contaminated Class 101's on the Central Wales line. Many of the Derby units were transferred from either Neville Hill or Hull Botanic Gardens.
