There's no doubting that the independent snow plough has been out doing a successful job overnight! Buxton DMU depot on 17th February 1986 with BRCW Class 104 set BX484 (M53496 nearest to the camera) adding to the fumes in the shed. DMU depots had a unique atmosphere of their own, although I doubt that those that had to work in these conditions felt the same about it! Remember the sound of Leyland, AEC and Rolls Royce engines turning over, slip, trip and fall hazards, and the inadequate fume extraction systems in depots such as Marylebone, Leith Central, Hull Botanic Gardens, Lincoln, Chester and Corkerhill, to name but a few. Memories!
