What could have been. UP 1943 leads train PCBOA3-16 across the Benicia-Martinez bridge. In the distance, train MRVOA-18 creeps onto the bridge. Had the special been a minute later, both would have raced across the bridge at the same time!
I found this print from a painting somewhere on the Internet. The DD together with 4CEP 7102 (one of the 4 prototype units built from converted Mk 1 stock I believe?) 7104 had varnished wood panelling rather than the plastic laminate of later units. Fond memories of travelling to and from school in 4CEP units between Walmer and Dover Priory in the 1960's. My school friends and I used to sit in a compartment together. I still have a copy of Ian Allen's abc guide and used to tick off those units which I had travelled on. Please remove if I am not allowed to post it.
