L594 & TS419 Cheltenham 17 November 1982

A meeting of classic DMUs at Cheltenham station on 17 November 1982. On the right, Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Co. Class 119 L594 (51104, 59435 & 51073) has just arrived with the 5B37 12:05 Gloucester to Cheltenham ECS, having reversed in Alstone Siding. It will shortly be heading south with the 2B37 12:37 service to Swindon. On the left, Metropolitan Cammell Class 101 TS419 (50328, 59536 & 50318) waits with the 2B29 11:25 Bristol Temple Meads to Worcester Foregate Street service. Just visible in the background, something heavy is being loaded into the commodious guard's compartment, which is something that would be impossible with today's DMUs.
