DMU

Date: 8th September 1975

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. I think I took it because it was on the rarely used middle line between these platforms, Today the image has an historical context that I didn't envisage in my last year as a teenager!
