DMU Long Preston 7 April 1984

A Class 110 DMU is pictured near Long Preston on 7 April 1984. Built by the Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company, these units soon got the nickname 'Calder Valley' sets, due to their area of operation. They were especially designed for these hilly routes, and so had a higher power to weight ration than most DMUs. They had all been withdrawn by 1988.
