A three-car Class 108 hybrid (108 DMS 53642 + 101 TBS - probably 59113 + 108 DMS 53632) at Windermere forming the 15.05 to Oxenholme on 20-10-1988. The branch had just been shortened slightly to allow a supermarket to be built in the old trainshed (behind the camera). To replace the old station, a smart new ticket office was built. However the branch was (and still is) a long siding from Oxenholme. Gordon Thomson.
