The aim for this part of our website is to collect and display as many images as possible of Class 104 Diesel Units during their main British Railways career. This covers the period from introduction in 1957, through 35 years of daily service, ending in some scrap yard scenes, where 289 of the 302 vehicles ended their days.
This online collection stands at over 1,300 images, and is the largest single resource for Class 104 images in the world; but without the generous permission given by the original photographers it would simply not be possible. The group appreciates their permission to have their record of these trains used here.
How to use
Due to the number of images required to load, usually ten driving vehicles are included on each page, please click the number range of the vehicles in the boxes below to view them. Centre cars and unidentified vehicles have their own pages, which may take some time to load. Some vehicles were renumbered during their lives but all are listed here with their original numbers, so for 53XXX and 54XXX vehicles, please see 50XXX and 56XXX respectively. All images appear as thumbnails, the full size image is viewed by clicking on the picture.
