Set 105 376 (a 105/107/107 hybrid) in Kilmacolm station forming the 11:01 to Glasgow Central on the 4th January 1983. The branch would be closed just days later.

A busy scene at Jesmond with a 3-car Class 101 and a 2-car Class 105. The Cravens set number appears to read 168, and that, along with the lack of destination blind suggests it's a recent transfer from Hamilton. Note also the two shades of yellow suggesting it has perhaps had repairs done. Undated, but mid-1970s. Ian Francis.
