The old Morecambe station in 1979, with a refurbished Class 108 and a Class 104 behind. John Law.
In the 1970's a ride on one of these was something to be avoided, rattles, the smell of diesel and noise from the underfloor engines all adding to the experience. Now 30 years on, having suffered Class 142s, a ride on a Cravens DMU would be quite luxurious.
