LMS Route: Birmingham New Street to Nuneaton
Nuneaton Abbey Street Station: mrna1951
A Diesel Multiple Unit has just departed Abbey Street
station with a service for Birmingham New Street on 24th February 1968. On the
left at the rear of the down platform the fencing has been removed as part of
the process of laying square concrete ducting to be used to house the cabling
associated with the colour aspect signalling being introduced. The white sign
with the number '3' on it is a guide for the driver of DMUs as it is
instructing drivers of three-car units to stop at this point. Being a short
platform no others are in sight but on longer platforms elsewhere similar signs
for '4' and '6' cars could be seen.
