Many people disliked the Cravens Class 105s intensely because of their noisy ride. To me this just added to the 'experience'. To get a Cravens twin with the needle off the clock (over 70mph) was exhilarating to say the least and also quite commonplace. Here Norwich set no. 47 (E51295 + E56429) awaits its next duty on September 9th 1981. Gerard Fletcher.

The vehicle is mentioned in the following images:

On a very bright Thursday October 28th 1982, the 11.47 Peterborough - Cambridge service pauses at Whittlesea with (left to right) Cravens Class 105 sets 58 (E51255/E56429) and 47 (E56135/E51295). Gerard Fletcher.


Date: 2nd April 1983

This is a view of the Norwich skyline taken from Lower Clarence Road car park. It is Easter Saturday, April 2nd 1983 and the Jubilee Sidings are brimming with dmus as usual. The nearest vehicle is Cravens trailer no. E56135 which is partnering E51295 as set no. 47. Gerard Fletcher.
