10th April 1971

Cravens class 129 motor parcels van No.M55997 is seen at Newton Heath depot on 10th April 1971, with the new diesel depot under construction behind. This MPV operated with the Derby Lightweight units on the Maryport and Carlisle Line for many years before reallocation to Chester. M55997 was the first of the three 150hp AEC-engined parcels vans in this class and were built by Cravens in 1958. They ended their working days working from Chester and were withdrawn 1972/73. This unit eventually went to the Railway Technical Centre at Derby as RDB975385 'Laboratory Coach 9' named 'Hydra'. Gordon Edgar.

129 DMU

16th September 1972

An ex-works M55997 at Chester on 16/09/72. As the Class 129 was Yellow Diamond vehicle, it couldn't multiple to the vehicles that sandwich it. As the Met-Camm vehicle behind also appears to be ex-works, perhaps these vehicles were loco-hauled from works? David Mant.
