DMU

Date: 7th June 1980

Illustrating a mix of liveries at Newcastle on 7/6/80, nearest the camera is DMBS E50165, still unrefurbished and retaining overall BR blue livery, paired with DTS(L) E56061 in DMU refurbished livery of white with blue band. By this date, refurbished livery had been abandoned for further refurbishments, which were being out-shopped in blue + grey instead. The latter car would have previously been a DTC(L) but the first class compartment has evidently been declassified as there is no yellow band at cantrail level. Graeme Phillips Collection.
