Taken at Forfar, this seems to be a Railway Society of Scotland tour on the 12th October 1968 (thanks to "Mad Mac" for helping identify this). Stuart Rankin.

Passing DMUs at Kingsknowe on 7 September 1971. Class 100 set 28 is departing on the 5.39pm ex-Edinburgh Waverley, the 101 arriving on the 4.40pm ex-Glasgow Central. Hamish Stevenson.
E56100, at Peterborough on 3/8/76 apparently heading for Norwich. Signs in the cab windows proclaim it's set 45 (the other vehicle appears to be a Cravens). David Underwood adds: "'4 WED' in the windscreen reflects the method by which Norwich Depot advised when the unit was next due for maintenance at Norwich, i.e. the unit had to be placed on a diagram that finished at Norwich on that day." Ian Francis.

E50346 at March on a very damp August 17th 1979 in ex works condition with domino style headcode display. After this hasty (and somewhat blurred) photo had been taken, I went down to the platform where further scrutiny revealed a paint date of 29/7/79. It was paired here with a rather less sparkling Cravens trailer, E56114, they were working the 17.10 Cambridge to Peterborough service. Gerard Fletcher.

Norwich Class 100/105 hybrid set 70 (50355 / 56134) in March station in August 1980. Ian Charles.
Two sets, both formed of a Gloucester (100) DMBS and a Cravens (105) DTCL, pass in the station throat at Norwich. Set 71 (100 facing) is on the right, berthed presumably for fueling, with set 65 (105 facing) on the left approaching the station. Whilst a Class 31 can also be seen in the background on the left, the main reason for the photograph is in the central background: 4771 "Green Arrow" setting off for a test run to Ely, following restoration to mainline running standards by Bill Harvey and members of Norfolk Railway Society. The loco never ran a railtour from Norwich in these times, being moved away immediately after restoration. Norfolk Wherry Trust.
