DMU

50346 at Cromer Beach on the 7th June 1975. It had recently been re-instated, having been withdrawn in October 1972. David Faircloth.

DMU

Date: 17th August 1979

Set number: 68

E50346 at March on a very damp August 17th 1979 in ex works condition with domino style headcode display. After this hasty (and somewhat blurred) photo had been taken, I went down to the platform where further scrutiny revealed a paint date of 29/7/79. It was paired here with a rather less sparkling Cravens trailer, E56114, they were working the 17.10 Cambridge to Peterborough service.
