A class 108 (DTCL 54262 nearest camera) works a local service on the Cumbrian Coast line at Drigg - c.1984. 53A Models of Hull Collection.


Date: 23rd August 1989

54262 and 53955 awaiting departure at Newcastle with the 17:24 Newcastle - Hexham, 3rd August 1989. The Heaton (HT) depot sticker, depicting the Tyne bridge, is clearly visible below the car number, which by this time has no regional prefix. This rush hour service was cancelled more often than not, probably due to lack of train unit, resulting in the 1715 Newcastle-Girvan (a ScotRail Class 156) being delayed to depart at 1724 and having to call at stations to Hexham. Graeme Phillips.

54262 + 53955 at Workington with the 09:43 Carlisle - Barrow service on August 27, 1990. Hamish Stevenson.
