It's funny how you can curse things, but then years later find that they add a strange charm to a photograph. I'm not sure which is the most rateable here, the Cravens or the classic pushchair? The occupant of the latter if favoured with longevity must be over 30 now ! This is Norwich set 59, E56114 + E51258 simmering at Ipswich before departure as the 10.48 to Lowestoft via the East Suffolk line. 9/9/81. Gerard Fletcher.
E54114 in Snailwell sometime in 1989. Surface Stock.
E50346 at March on a very damp August 17th 1979 in ex works condition with domino style headcode display. After this hasty (and somewhat blurred) photo had been taken, I went down to the platform where further scrutiny revealed a paint date of 29/7/79. It was paired here with a rather less sparkling Cravens trailer, E56114, they were working the 17.10 Cambridge to Peterborough service. Gerard Fletcher.
The very rare sight of a DMU (classes 114 & 105) on a Liverpool Street - Cambridge service: E50003, E56014, E56114 and E51294 head the 12.05 Liverpool Street - Cambridge at Hackney Downs presumably due to shortage of loco or stock. The same unit worked Up on the 09.27 Cambridge - Liverpool Street and it wasn't doing too badly at only 8 minutes late! 16/Oct/1980. Robert Chilton.
