DMU

Date: 12th April 1985

On 12th April 1985, just a month before withdrawal on the outskirts of Skipton is a Swindon Cross-Country class 120 dmu set, comprising of cars M51575 + M59581 + M51584, which has either worked in over the Settle & Carlisle line or the Little North Western from Lancaster. These units were not common along here, this is the only time I think I saw one, it's certainly the only photogragh I have of one along here!
