Class 504 Manchester-Bury EMUs at Watford Junction.1 viewsIn the unfamiliar surroundings of Watford Junction, Class 504 Manchester-Bury EMU cars stand in the sidings at Watford Junction on February 19th 1982. The cars here were M65436, M65437 & M77157 in green. The cars were surplus to requirements in the early 1970s and had been in store at Bury Depot still carrying either early BR blue or BR green. The cars were moved South to provide spare parts for the Euston-Watford Class 501s that were maintained at Croxley Green Depot.

Still carrying their early 1970s liveries, the cars were moved to Watford to supply spare parts for the Class 501 EMU fleet. Although the Bury units were built at Wolverton, this was probably the furthest South that these cars had ever travelled.

When the Tyneside system was de-electrified in 1963, the 15 units were transferred to the Southern Region to join the similar EPB fleet already in service.

2-HAP 4311 (61287) - Electric Railway Museum, Baginton, Coventry.0 viewsWith Kent Coast branding on its Network South East livery, 2-HAP 4311 was on display at the Electric Railway Museum at Baginton on September 13th 2015. The two-car unit was built at Eastleigh in 1958.
This and the other views were taken on an early morning visit to the museum, when the volunteers here kindly let me gain access before the official opening time. If your ever in the area when the museum is open, pay them a visit and give them some support. The collection is unique and well worth a look.
