An interesting van – Cambridge 1975

I’m continuing to sort out my photographs, and scan and move a lot of them into the cloud.  Here’s another batch, taken on Cambridge station in 1975, probably on a trip back home to Kent from university.  It must have been some special occasion, as it took a lot to prise me out of college and away from friends and Greene King bitter.

It’s well before electrification, but also well after the days of steam and especially the venerable E4 2-4-0’s on the branch line train to Mildenhall.  I guess the departmental van is a generator of some kind.  Not something we see modelled very often.  I also have a sort spot for the old LMS 50 ft luggage van.  I was pleased to get the ‘N’ gauge Farish version recently, and somewhere, buried in my loft, is an EM version.
