Class 124 Swindon Trans-Pennine 6-car DMUs


Liveries

When new the exteriors of the cars were painted green with cream lining. The vehicles never carried whiskers, although small yellow panels were added in the mid-'60s.

Being classed as 'inter-city' vehicles they by-passed the plain all-blue and went straight into blue/grey. A few started with wrap around yellow ends covering the cab doors, although soon this returned to the normal yellow end as per the others.

In blue/grey the DMCs carried 'Trans-Pennine' hand painted in white on the sides for a period.

This blue/grey set has E51954 (nearest) +E59837+E59239+E51955 at Lancaster Castle on the 25th August 1982. Robert Frise.
