E54439 + E53381 near Ely on a Cambridge to Lincoln service, 04.08.86. Surface Stock.
Norwich was always swarming with the busy little Cravens Class 105 dmus in the 70s & 80s. Resting between duties here is Set 43, E51297 + E56439. The old twin headcode box has been plated over which was unusual and note yet another Cravens reflected in the windows! The destination blind shows Ipswich, but strangely there was only a single dmu working along the main line through Diss at this time. This was the 17.15 Norwich - Ipswich all stations which was scheduled to run just behind a London service. 9/9/81. Gerard Fletcher.
53381 and 54439 depart from Leicester with the 11:54 Leicester to Peterborough on the 5th July 1986. Dennis Taylor.
