One of the aesthetically pleasing Class 110 BRCW 'Calder Valley' dmu sets is seen at York on 2nd July 1981. The leading car , E51809, was ex shops on 5/6/81 explaining its pristine condition. It lasted in service until 1989 before being cut up at Vic Berry's yard in Leicester. Here E51809 is leading E59814 and E52076. The redundant four character headcode panel has been plated over, this modification happened from around 1977 onwards following the abandonment of the codes. Gerard Fletcher.
