A Rolls-Royce powered Met-Camm set departing from Whitby in the early 1960s, thought to be on a York service. David Faircloth.
A Rolls-Royce powered BRCW set (known later as a Class 110) in Whitby Town station. Date unknown. David Faircloth.
Whitby station on July 21st, 1958. Less than a month old, E50605 (presumably with 56196) is at the front of the 5.40pm Whitby - Middlesborough service, formed of a two-car 108 and two-car 101. They are awaiting the arrival of the 4.25pm ex-Scarborough before they depart as a combined train. Michael Mensing.
E50264 leads a three-car Met-Camm away from Whitby with a Scarborough service on July 22nd, 1958. Michael Mensing.
A station full of Met-Camms. Whitby Town contains at least four sets. The driver-trailer set on the right is in the darker green, the revised lining shows that the DMBS has been repainted at Doncaster. It's partner seems to have thicker than normal lining. No date, but the yellow panels everywhere suggest the mid to late-1960s. David Faircloth.
A unit descending from Prospect Hill Junction to Whitby Town. John Darwent Collection.
Class 101 DMUs at Whitby Town in 1964. A busy scene, with three Class 101 units, plus loco-hauled stock is also visible behind the middle unit. At this time, Whitby was still linked to Scarborough, albeit requiring reversals at either end of the route to leave / access the stations, but this coastal route closed the following year, 1965. All three Met-Camms have different width of yellow panels. The set on the right is formed DMS/TBS/DMS. Graeme Phillips Collection.
A Class 101 seen at Whitby on the 12th April 1972. It is in blue livery with just a small yellow warning panel. John Reddyhoff.
Whitby on the 24th April 1977. Nearest the camera are cars 50188 and 50162, each unit still unrefurbished at this stage, retaining all four front lights. The unit on the left appears to be 4-cars. Plenty of history in this image, with orange BR NER signage, station accessories / equipment plus all the tracks into the station terminus are still intact. With diminishing services, the station was later rationalised to just the single track on the left. Graeme Phillips Collection.
Car E50250 is seen at Whitby awaiting return to Middlesbrough on 05/09/1977. It is in the platform that was taken out of use, but has since been restored to use for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Graeme Phillips Collection.
A Class 101 at Whitby in October 1978. Still unrefurbished and in blue livery, this unit has just arrived from Middlesbrough. Plenty of history in this image, with orange BR NER signage, station accessories / equipment plus all the tracks into the station terminus are still intact. With diminishing services, the station was later rationalised to just the single track on the left. However, the platform at which this unit is standing was restored to use in 2014 for NYMR services. Graeme Phillips Collection.
A 3-car refurbished Class 101 in Whitby, taken in 1979. John Law.
A Met cam 101 dmu leaves Whitby for Middlesbrough on 7/4/1980. The DMS is E50262, the number of the DMBS is part obscured by the signal, E51*05 is visible, it is almost certainly 51205. Stephen Burdett.
Twin Met cam 101 dmus leave Whitby for Middlesbrough passing the curiously named Bog Hall signalbox. Note the tail lamp on the front of the train. Also that on each set one vehicle has the window frames painted blue, the other unpainted. 7th April 1980. Stephen Burdett.
Now thankfully platform 2 has been restored but it is unlikely that 2 Met Cam 101 dmus will be seen in the terminus again. This 7/4/1980 view shows units bound for Darlington and Middlesbrough. Stephen Burdett.
Recently painted E50574 (with window bars) is seen at Whitby on the 30th August 1980. Jerry Glover.
