122 DMU

Unknown Date

Class 122 55011 at Barassie, where the line from Kilmarnock joins the main Glasgow to Ayr line (thanks to "Mad Mac" for identifying the location). Circa 1969. Stuart Rankin.

circa 1969

Three Class 122 bubbles in three liveries in the bay platforms at Kilmarnock, circa 1969. At the time they were used on services to Ayr. 55011 is closest, the green unit on the left is 55013, behind is 55000 carrying blue livery with a small yellow panel. Stuart Rankin.

1969

A class 122 single car waits to leave Stourbridge Town for Stourbridge Junction in 1969. This station was systematically vandalised over the years, with the canopy first to be removed. Then a new bus shelter and portakabin ticket office were erected where the running in board is. This enabled demolition of the remaining building. Since then the station has been relocated and a new transport interchange opened. The line used to be double here, with a nearby Signalbox controlling it and eventually they were converted to 2 single lines with the right hand one continuing down a fearsome gradient to a goods depot. Notoriety was gained during the 70s with the unit running through the stop blocks, the most serious being in 1977 when the front bogies dropped into Foster street. Fortunately it was Grand National Day and most of the good people of Stourbridge were backing their ggs! Stephen Burdett.

Three GRC&W Bubble Cars in Kilmarnock station, circa 1968/9. The nearest 55013 is still in green, the middle vehicle 55000 is in the early blue livery with small yellow panel, the furthest 55011 is in blue with full yellow ends. Stuart Rankin.

55000 at Barassie on the 5:15pm Ayr - Kilmarnock, 1/3/69. It's carrying an early version of rail blue livery. Hamish Stevenson.


122 DMU

circa September 1969

Wolverhampton Low Level station in Autumn 1969. Single car diesel multiple unit dmu W55008, in rail blue with yellow end panels, stands in the only rail connected platform as the late afternoon light is fading. The very last gasp for passenger services on this one-time Great Western Railway trunk route from London to Merseyside. Pete LG99.


122 DMU

circa September 1969

Birmingham Snow Hill in Autumn 1969. A single diesel multiple unit (W55008) was sufficient for the weekend traffic to Wolverhampton Low Level. It was in blue livery with a small yellow warning panel & here with exhaust billowing from its two cab roof pipes it is ticking over in bay platform 4 prior to departure. Pete LG99.

circa September 1969

The beautiful old Great Western Railway Birmingham Snow Hill station with a single car GRC&W dmu forming the shuttle train to Wolverhampton Low Level, Autumn 1969. Pete LG99.


122 DMU

circa September 1969

Taken at Birmingham Snow Hill in Autumn 1969, the days when at least a shuttle service ran to Wolverhampton Low Level. This single car dmu sitting in bay platfom 4 looks a bit lost in the grandeur of the setting but was sufficient for the expected custom. The disused Great Charles Street exit is ringed by the delicate Edwardian wrought iron fencing & gate between bay platform 4 & the Down Main platform 5. The tracks are still in the platform lines but the through lines have been severed at this point. Pete LG99.

122 DMU

1971

Now known as Handsworth, the Saturday only midday Birmingham Snow Hill to Wolverhampton Low Level single car leaves Handsworth & Smethwick in 1971. Snow Hill by now had 6 daily deps to Wolverhampton and 4 to Langley Green. 4 tracks are back in place with the Jewellery Line and the Metro. Stephen Burdett.


122 DMU

1971

The Saturdays only 12.40 to Wolverhampton Low Level waits to leave the largest unstaffed halt in the world, resting in the murk of Birmingham Snow Hill. Only two platforms remained in use for 10 daily departures. Seven on a Saturday and none on Sundays! Stephen Burdett.

975023 about to pass Hinksey South signalbox, Oxford in 1971. Adrian Vaughan.

This appears to be a Class 122 bubble arriving, it'll be well packed if so. St. Erth station / unknown date. Steve Davies Collection.


122 DMU

14th May 1971

55015 seen at Stirling 14/5/71. The different tone of blue between the nearest cab door and the first 'passenger' door with a droplight signifies where body panels have been altered removing a window and making a double door. Through the cab windows we can see wire mesh has been fitted to the insides of the white painted windows. Hamish Stevenson.


122 DMU

21st May 1971

Two three-car Met-Camm sets have a Class 131 (presumably 55015 due to the small yellow panel) and a wagon on the rear when seen at Carrick Knowe on the outskirts of Edinburgh on 21/5/71. Believed to be a service from Stirling. GM Staddon.
