Many people disliked the Cravens Class 105s intensely because of their noisy ride. To me this just added to the 'experience'. To get a Cravens twin with the needle off the clock (over 70mph) was exhilarating to say the least and also quite commonplace. Here Norwich set no. 47 (E51295 + E56429) awaits its next duty on September 9th 1981. Gerard Fletcher.
On a very bright Thursday October 28th 1982, the 11.47 Peterborough - Cambridge service pauses at Whittlesea with (left to right) Cravens Class 105 sets 58 (E51255/E56429) and 47 (E56135/E51295). Gerard Fletcher.
