A three-car Class 108 hybrid (108 DMS 53632 + 101 TBS - probably 59113 + 108 DMS 53642) at Windermere forming the 15.05 to Oxenholme on 20-10-1988. The branch had just been shortened slightly to allow a supermarket to be built in the old trainshed (in the background). To replace the old station, a smart new ticket office was built. However the branch was (and still is) a long siding from Oxenholme. Gordon Thomson.
DMU C984 (presumably 53635 + 53224, a 108 / 101 hybrid) and a class 442 5-WES unit at Weymouth. Date unknown, circa late 1980s. Stuart Pearce.

E53638 leads a 3-car Class 108 set into Hull under Argyll Street bridge on 12th August 1986. This scene has completely changed; the railway cottages have been demolished, as has the old pavilion at the Circle cricket ground seen in the distance above the second coach. Today, there is a gigantic footbridge and walkway to the KC Stadium which now fills the entire area behind the train. Syd Young.

The branch had just been shortened slightly to allow a supermarket to be built in the old trainshed (behind the camera). To replace the old station, a smart new ticket office was built. However the branch was (and still is) a long siding from Oxenholme. Gordon Thomson.
E50643 can't decide which way it wants to go, but if it had travelled much further the Wickham set might have had a dented cab. Just south of York station, summer 1979. Peter Mullen.

DMS(L) E50645 is seen at Newcastle, in what was then platform 2, waiting to depart with a North Tyneside circular service to the coast and back. These services were withdrawn a few years later, to be replaced by the Tyneside Metro system. Platforms 1-3 were taken out of use and turned into a car park, so the first platform was 4, where a recently arrived Class 101 DMU is seen unloading in this view. Although Class 101 units tended to be the mainstay of north-east local services for over 30 years, Class 108s also worked in the area, mainly seen on North Tyneside services, up until the mid-1970s, being transferred away before refurbishment. They were replaced by an influx of Class 105s which had been displaced by EMUs from Great Northern services out of London King's Cross, following electrification of those suburban routes.
