A dirty E53958 and E54227 are seen awaiting departure from Carlisle with a service to Whitehaven on 26/06/91. A fleet of 2-car power-trailer Class 108 DMUs, allocated to Kingmoor (KD) depot, Carlisle, were the mainstay of Cumbrian Coast services for many years. Upon the closure of that depot in May 1988, most were transferred to Heaton (HT) depot, Newcastle, still intended to continue with Cumbrian services (the rest went to Chester (CH) depot for services in north Lancashire). They lasted until November 1991, when finally replaced by then newly-converted Class 153 single car units. Graeme Phillips Collection.
