DMU

Date: 2nd September 1983

Set number: 52

E51952 has a freshly painted front end when seen at Brough on the rear of a Trans-Pennine service to Hull on 2nd September 1983. The repainting had been done at BG after a minor bump. The window rubbers, normally left black, were painted as they had a fair amount of paint on them already. The unit has the number "52" hand-painted on the front, 51961 and 51964 also had numbers painted on the front end. It has had red bulbs installed in the old headcode panel, presumably to prevent damage to the nicely painted lamp-brackets! Syd Young.
