A Swindon Cross-Country DMU in Edinburgh Waverley in October 1979. This would be an Inverness allocated vehicle, the first passenger window carries a 1 for first class making it a DMBC. The cut / oval buffers means that it is almost certainly 51787. S Saunders.
SC51788 at Perth on 8th September, 1975. An example of a negative I never thought worthy of printing in 1975, the unit was a mere 15 years out of Swindon Works.
