Collision involving Class 108 / Class 123
8:17 Chesterfield to Sheffield formed E52102/E59826/E52093 ran away at Heeley, entered Sheffield station at speed and collided with empty DMU M52043/M51923. The brakes on the 8:17 failed due to inadequate maintenance of brake cylinders at Hull Dairycoates.
Set 714 at Doncaster on 3/12/78. E52102 has lost the gangway cover, and the inner door has been made unopenable. The obsolete headcode box has effectively turned into marker lights. A 114 can be seen on the left and Met-Camm on the right. Malcolm Clements.
Swindon-built "Inter City" set with E52102 nearest the camera has just arrived at Hull Paragon with a train from Manchester on 30th April 1984. In the background, Trans-Pennine DMU E51958 is at the front of another service over the "Backbone of England". This was the last photo I took of these rather wonderful units, as within a few days of this they were all withdrawn from service. Syd Young.
E51951 leads a Liverpool Lime Street - Hull special into Sheffield on June 15, 1980. The complete rake was E51951, E51975, E59718, E59766, E52102, M51859, M59718, M59723 and M51561. John Carter.
