Last day at old Moor Street? Or was it? This class 116 unit (TS337, 53838 at the front presumably with 59751 + 53853) waits to depart for Leamington Spa from the old terminal platforms at Birmingham Moor Street on 26/9/1987 which was supposed to be their last day of use. The platform shown is still not in use but 23 years on the other 2 were reopened.
