Bury Beauty


With the news dominated by shiny new EMUs, DMUs and Bi-modes of late, how’s this for a shiny piece of railway history.  Hats off to the Class 504 Preservation Society for the superb external restoration of DTC M77172 at Bury.  Once the power car M65451 has been equally treated the unit should be ready to celebrate its 60 anniversary by the end of next year.  (Photo: Class 504 Preservation Society)
