Wednesday would usually be my day off from work around the time this photograph was taken, so quite often I would buy an Anglia Day Ranger ticket and do a circular tour from March or King's Lynn. This was the case on 5/3/80 when this was the scene alongside Ipswich station at 11.25 that morning. Set 63 with Felixstowe on the blinds comprised E56432 with power car E51268 at the rear. The most interesting aspect of this shot though, are the two dmu cars in the background. Set 70 has obviously had some incident befall it, as Gloucester RCW Class 100 power car E51127 has been separated from its partner Cravens Class 105 trailer E56134. Some of the Gloucester RCW units had charmed lives and E51127 had already survived being withdrawn in 1972 and stored in 1974 on its native Scottish Region, before being sent down to Norwich in May 1975. It lasted here until October 1980 when it was dispatched to the LMR ending up at Tyseley and finally Newton Heath from where it was retired in Dec. 82. Gerard Fletcher.
