The British Rail Class 104 diesel multiple units were built by Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company from 1957 to 1959. The first units were ordered for the London Midland Region, with the majority of the class for use in North West of England, sets were also used on Tyneside, like the Metro-Cammell class 101's these units truly worked nationwide, but of all the routes worked by the class the Buxton route was the one with which they became synonymous. Here is a Newton Heath allocated set comprising of M53465 + M53499 in Stockport's platform 3a with the Stalybridge shuttle service on 30th August 1987. Andrew J Crowther.
