Class 105 E53364 at Liverpool Street After withdrawal from revenue earning service, some class 105's were transferred to the parcels sector. This unit is seen at Liverpool Street - but it's nothing like the Liverpool Street of today. I'm fairly certain it was taken one of those 'Ian Allan' Network Days. Looking at the adjacent negatives it must have been October 1987. Stuart Pearce.
