Cravens Class 105 DMBS 50394 awaits it's fate at Derby Litchurch Lane. It has the relatively rare combination of the LM Region headcode box and the stump for mounting a marker light on the roof dome, though no light was ever fitted, unique to the M50390 - 94 batch. It was withdrawn in the mid 1970s after a collision/derailment at Watford Junction that also wiped out M56147 (thanks to Eddie Knorn for info). Undated. Ian Francis.
