Some sample formations the vehicle has been noted in:

50764 59319 50797 As delivered to 5B - January 1958



Date: January 1979

With the paraffin tail lamp moved to the cab front of Motor Brake Second M50764, the Cravens Power-Twin prepares to depart from a Wintery Ormskirk with the 09.19 to Preston in January 1979. During this period the Newton Heath based Class 105s were not common on the Ormskirk Line, the Derby built Class 108s were the normal fare. The weather was a total surprise on that day, no snow on leaving Preston, the wintery weather started across Farington Moss and got progressively worse towards Merseyside. Martyn Hilbert.


Date: 18th March 1979

Cravens Class 105 Motor Brake Second M50764 leads a 2-Car power-twin into Rufford with a Preston to Ormskirk working on March 18th 1979. M50764 has a clean almost ex-works appearance. Waiting at the level crossing is Threlfall Haulage Bedford TK flatbed lorry, Registration number POD 654H dating from 1969. The shot is the wrong side for the light, but the gates were closed as I arrived and forced this view! Martyn Hilbert.
