Cardiff Central on my day trip of Monday 6th August 1979. On the right is Class 116 BR Derby Suburban set C333, W51148 + W59445 + W51135 which had arrived on the 09.17 Penarth - Cardiff and was about to leave as the 09.45 to Merthyr. On the left, still in all over blue is Class 118 BRCW set B468 W51310 + W59471 + W51325 which had come in on the 08.25 from Gloucester. It was attached to Met Cam Class 101 set B801 (W51446 + W 59547 + W51517) after this shot was taken and then worked the 09.55 to Weston-Super-Mare. Gerard Fletcher.
This is W51517 leading Met Cam set B801 (W59547 & W51446) at Cardiff on 6/8/79. It would be attached to Class 118 BRCW set B468 W51310 + W59471 + W51325 and work the 09.55 to Weston-Super- Mare. Gerard Fletcher.
A proper Black Country scene as a class 101 (B801, 51446 leads, presumably with 59547 + 51517) prepares to enter Old Hill tunnel with a Birmingham New Street to Worcester Foregate Street service having just left Rowley Regis. 20/1/1980. Stephen Burdett.
Class 101 set B801 (presumably 51517 + 59547 + 51446) is seen in Severn Beach station. Date unknown. John Law.
