BR 33003 series Driving Instructions


folder

These were introduced beginning in the late '50s, and featured technical details of the vehicles, how to start them, drive them, fault finding etc., and fitted into 8" x 5" plastic ring binders as on the right.

Unlike the later 33056 series, there was generally one for each type of unit (and loco), until the later 2xx revisions when they were all thrown together.

The details below are not copied from any authorative listing, just compiled from the booklets themselves. Thanks are due to Brian Slamo, Basil Hancock, Darren Williams, Neil Green and other contributors, but mainly to Simon Dagnall for managing to produce list after list of these!

If you can help to fill any of the gaps, I would be pleased to hear from you.
