Class 116 DMS no. 53907 at the head of Tyseley's 3-car suburban set T321, formed with 59753 & 51854 out of sight in the gloom of Birmingham New Street. This was a hybrid set, the other two cars being class 115, a common practice at Tyseley. Waiting to leave for Longbridge on 26/Jul/1991. Robert Chilton.
The often-smokey atmosphere of Birmingham New Street is shown to good effect in this rather gloomy shot, with Tyseley's hybrid 4-car suburban set T409 formed class 116 DMS 53894 (nearest) with out of sight 59367 (class 116 TC), 59600 (class 127 TSL) & 51860 (class 115 DMBS) adding it's contribution on 26/Jul/1991. Many of the Tyseley suburban sets contained class 127 centre trailers which were gangwayed, refurbished and painted blue/grey for the first time in their lives when the St.Pancras - Bedford line was electrified. This saw the class 127 power cars withdrawn, with some being converted for parcels use, and the trailers sent north to the West Midlands for another 10 years' use and becoming the longest-lived class 127 vehicles other than those which were preserved. Robert Chilton.
Tyseley's 3-car suburban set T319 formed class 116 DMS 51149 (nearest), 59756 (class 115 TCL) & 51129 (class 116 DMBS) just protruding from the undercover part of Birmingham New Street. 47851 is stabled in the adjacent line awaiting it's next turn of duty on 26/Jul/1991. Robert Chilton.
