Images of Class 119 Diesel Multiple Units taken in the Taunton Area

21st March 1970
We turn back the clock to provide a superb image from 1970. This shot (taken from the ground of Taunton School) on the 21st March 1970 and shows Taunton West Junction Signal Box with a Class 119 DMU (51080+51097) passing working a Taunton - Minehead stopping service. Adjacent is a Class 42 'Warship' No.D813 which had been held on the Taunton 'avoider' hauling the 7C30 09:10 Stoke Gifford - Exeter Riverside mixed fright.

This image shows a British Rail Class 119 stabled in Platform 1 at Taunton in the 1980's. At the time this platform was not for passenger use, so the Class 119 must have been stabled between duties (or failed).We know little information about this image.
