127 DMU

26th June 1977

The original Midland Railway Bedford station of 1859 had beautiful ridge & furrow glass awnings with intricate wrought iron supports. Here one of the St Pancras service dmus stands in the Up platform on 26th June 1977. I believe that the signal box glimpsed through the bridge arches stands on the junction between the Hitchin & London lines. In 1978, with electrification, all this was swept away to build a new steel & glass station located 200yards further north. This was to avoid the tight curves into the station from the south as the original platforms were on the older Hitchin lines. For 100 years since the Midland built its own line to London, this hadn't been a problem but to aid the speeding up of services the new station was built on the avoiding line curve to the left of this view.

February 1981

The carriage sidings at Bedford Midland photographed in February 1981, full of Class 127 dmus awaiting their next duties. The "new" Bedford Midland station can be seen in the distance, with another Class 127 reversing before returning on a service to St Pancras. These sidings were swept away to make space for the extended car park at Bedford, and the Class 127s were all replaced when the line was electrified by Class 319 emus. Lewis Bevan.

127 DMU

8th May 1981

51606 sits at London St. Pancras waiting to depart with another service to Bedford on 8/May/1981. It would appear that the driver's windscreen has been replaced with a spare/reclaimed one from the second man's side at some point, unless an overhead warning flash has been placed somewhat unusually on the driver's side. 51606 was later reborn as one of the parcels conversions; 55969 (originally 55989 but renumbered on account of duplicating a class 128 running number).
