56092 (with 50137 on the left, 50136 on the right) heads out of Birmingham New Street at 5.39pm on the 6th May 1959. They were working British Industries Fair shuttles to Castle Bromwich that day. Michael Mensing.
A Met-Camm set at Marsden, West Yorkshire on 15/11/1986. The formation is noted as including cars E51496 E53136 E53182. The closest car has a Tyne & Wear PTE logo, so has either strayed from the north-east or has recently transferred to Yorkshire. Is the set arriving at the station, displaying red marker lights? Graeme Phillips Collection.
