THE National Railway Museum’s Metropolitan-Cammell Class 101 DMU – DMBS No. M51188 and DTSL No. M56352 – have been overhauled to a high standard by the Weybourne Traction Group.
They are now able to operate in multiple with the NNR’s own Class 101 set, DMBS No. E51228 and DTSL No. E56062.
It was good to hear four synchronised diesels with their characteristic rasping exhausts as they prepared to depart Weybourne for Sheringham on the Friday of the North Norfolk Railway’s June 14-16 June mixed traction gala.
