Cars 51087 59040 53847 are seen awaiting departure from the then platform 5 at Newcastle with an evening commuter service, 16/9/87. The front car is Class 119, the other two are Class 116. Adjacent in the then platform 4 are Mk 1 coaches (distinguishable from DMU stock by the window frames and Commonwealth bogies), probably a locomotive-hauled Pacer substitution - these were invariably three coaches in length, and their positioning relative to the DMU suggests a locomotive may be 'trapped' at the buffer stops.
