"Eddie Knorn and I travelled to Birmingham for the last advertised day of first generation DMU services on the Cross City Line, where great things were expected. Unfortunately on the day, many of the services were in the hands of 'Centro' liveried 150s. Here Class 116 DMBS 51138, set T405, and Class 117 DMS 51412, set T307, are seen at Birmingham New Street on the final day, Sunday 29 November 1992 - only it wasn't the final day as it turned out, with another 'Finale' taking place in 1993."
