A Class 108 2-car set with recently-renumbered 53599 bringing up the rear trundles away from Cottingham on a Hull - Scarborough service on 18th October 1983. The semaphores went the following year and the box lingered on until 1987. The latter is now preserved in the Hull Streetlife Museum. Syd Young.
My train home, the 14.00 departure from Wigan Wallgate which I'd take to Appley Bridge. This was the 10.39 York to Southport service and was worked by a Neville Hill Class 108 set including car 53599. 20th October 1984. S Gaskell.
Class 108 53599 is seen stabled at Tyseley on 26.12.1987. It was later preserved. Andy Cole.

"Em, it won't fit in the skip Sir!" 53604 is raised for easier removal of underframe items, which made for easier stacking. Vic Berry's 5/6/88. Jerry Glover.
Class 108 DMBS E53604 at Vic Berrys, Leicester on 5-6-88. Kevin Dowd.
E53604 on top of two skips to allow underframe components to be cut off. Vic Berrys, 5th June 1988. Malcolm Clements.
Whitby station on July 21st, 1958. Less than a month old, E50605 (presumably with 56196) is at the front of the 5.40pm Whitby - Middlesborough service, formed of a two-car 108 and two-car 101. They are awaiting the arrival of the 4.25pm ex-Scarborough before they depart as a combined train. Michael Mensing.
Set B961 (53608 + 54208) in Weymouth station on June 30, 1988, after arriving on a service from Bristol. Hamish Stevenson.
An impressive 10-car DMU rake led by MetroTrain branded 53610 and 54199, followed by a plain blue class 105 pair and three more two-car class 108 sets heads for York at Kirkham Abbey on 27/Jul/1986. Robert Chilton.
A two-car Class 108 and three-car Class 107 arrive into Gourock with a service from Glasgow on March 12, 1966, the last day of semaphore signals. The DTC on the 108 seems to be 56202, which means the power car closest is almost certainly 50611. They had been transferred from the NER the previous month, the power car has a distinct darker patch under the Sc where the previous prefix had been painted over. Corriebob.
An accident damaged Class 108 DMBS. Taken on the Scottish Region and it's green, so I'm assuming it is 50611 withdrawn from Leith Central in October 1966. The October 1966 Railway Observer mentions collision damage to a DMU at Thornton on August 31st, which seems the likely cause. AA McLean Collection.
Class 108 53612 is seen stabled at Tyseley carriage sidings on 07.02.1988. Andy Cole.
Class 108 set no. B962 formed DMBS 53612 and DTCL 54492 at Bristol Parson Street heading for Taunton on 8/Apr/1989. Robert Chilton.
