Our train to Sheringham simmering at Norwich on March 15th 1986 with Cravens set E54125 + E53373 numbered set 30. Weeks later it was transferred to Cambridge for DPU use. By November a new (and final) set 30 had been formed, the famous Stratford painted 'Green Cravens'. Photo by Philip Mott. Gerard Fletcher.

One of the last 'Cravens' DMU's (54122 + 53359)was repainted into BR Green for its final months in service, and it is seen here at Sudbury on October 1987. I should say that this was taken with the knowledge and permission of the railway staff present. Stuart Pearce.
Working the 07.10 Doncaster to Cambridge is the green Cravens set E53359 + E54122 and class 101 51501 + 51175 near Kiln Lane Ely, 31.12.87. Surface Stock.
Norwich based class 105 'Cravens' DMU set no.30 (53359+54122), by this time one of the very few left in passenger service on the network, calls at West Runton whist working a Sheringham-Norwich service on 17th August 1988. This DMU was restored to a retro BR livery with cats whiskers in April 1986 to mark the end of DMU operations on the Anglia Region in the London Area. It was withdrawn on the 03/11/88 and with the unit being considered to have asbestos contamination it went to Mayer-Newman's scrapyard at Snailwell, where it was incinerated in the fire tunnel and reduced to scrap on 23/02/89.
