DMU

Date: 5th October 1974

The department in Rail House at Manchester that used to be responsible for day excursions came up with the brilliant idea of an overnight trip to Penzance and an overnight trip home! Corridor stock and enough room to get some kip! Mr Heyl and myself got a day return to Plymouth and stopped off at Truro to do the Falmouth branch. This is how it was in 1974. A man with a bag on wheels, years ahead of his time! Grumpy guard next to the unit (51079, 51107, 59437) waiting for the passengers, man checking tickets at the bottom of the ramp - a true 'moment in time'. 5th October 1974. Arnie Furniss.
