At Norwich on 15/3/86 is Sheringham bound Set 30 on the left (E54125 closest) alongside Set 34, a relatively recent arrival at Norwich depot, but destined to be one of the final seven sets based there. Formed of E54421 & E53366, the set number is shown in the old destination indicator on the trailer which is possibly unique. Photo by Philip Mott. Gerard Fletcher.
On a couple of Saturdays in 1986, my friend Phil Mott accompanied me on an Anglian Day Ranger ticket. He equipped me with a 'proper' camera and between us we took some black and white pictures on our travels. This in Norwich on 1st April 1986. I suspect it is one of Phil's pictures as I tended to avoid getting people in mine, which in retrospect is a bit of a shame. Mind you, we'd probably be carted off by the BTP if we took a picture like this today. Our aim was to photograph the Cravens 105s and Classic series ETH Class 31/4s, so this was a bit of good fortune, getting a trio of Cravens. Gerard Fletcher.
