Class 111 E78713 reaching the final stages of cutting at Vic Berry's on 11.05.90. Surface Stock.
A Metropolitan-Cammell 2-car set with E78713 on the rear arrives at Barnetby on 13th May 1988. 20100 can just be discerned behind the signalbox heading up the hill light engine. Note at this date only the three-doll bracket signal exists. The two separate home signals were presumably added at a later date. Syd Young.
