B800 Kemble 26 August 1979

I only managed to get a few pictures of refurbished first generation DMUs in their short lived white with blue stripe livery. Any livery with large areas of white is hardly a practical proposition on railway vehicles, and this livery was soon abandoned in favour of the standard blue and grey coach scheme. In gloomy weather conditions, Class 101 Metro Cammell unit B800 (51515, 59549 & 51445) stands at a deserted Kemble station on 26 August 1979 with the 2B16 17:15 Swindon to Cheltenham service.
