derby-lightweight DMU

1971

All of the original West Cumberland trailer cars (M79600-12) were scrapped by Arnott Young at various locations other than two which moved to Derby. There one became part of the Ultrasonic test train, the other, M79610 (which was the original partner of the ultrasonic test train power car M79018) was scrapped at Cohens in Kettering in early 1971, where it is pictured. Tony Wilkins.

1971

M79610 at Cohens in Kettering in early 1971. During it's time at Derby it's had a hole cut in the side (why?) and glass removed, but otherwise looks complete. Grey paint has been applied (covering graffiti or an experiment?) but it's clear its last livery in traffic was plain blue with yellow cab doors and 3" numbers. Tony Wilkins.

79612

derby-lightweight DMU

Unknown Date

No details came with this image, but it's three West Cumberland sets, and appears to be M79612 leading (now preserved). Being a six-car formation and carrying sideboards it's probably one of the regular 'John Peel Land Cruise' trains. It is seen on the West Coast Main Line, passing over the Dillicar water troughs in the Lune Gorge just south of Tebay. Stuart Mackay Collection.

derby-lightweight DMU

Unknown Date

British Railways (Derby Lightweight) single unit (DMBS) railcar M79900 at Banbury Merton Street station with a service for Buckingham - c.1958. Remarkably this railcar survives to this day, having been rebuilt as test coach "Iris", based at Bletchley and numbered 975010 in the departmental series. Its last years of service were with the Research Centre at Derby where it was again repainted into lined green livery. It is now preserved at the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway. 53A Models of Hull Collection.

79901

derby-lightweight DMU

1960

Derby Lightweight "Double-Ender" 79901, thought to be at Buckingham. The photographer notes "it must be returning to Verney Junction and if it is only shuttling over that short length of the Banbury branch the rest must have already had its passenger service withdrawn." Taken in 1960. Adrian Vaughan.
