  • All the images that follow are presented in separate “galleries”, with each gallery comprising three individually numbered images. A description of what each image shows appears immediately underneath the image. Click on any image in the gallery and you will be taken to an enlarged copy of the chosen image. There are forward and back buttons, which will allow you to manually scroll through the entire gallery, one image at a time, a start/stop button, which moves the images automatically after a few seconds from one to the next and a symbol (a circle enclosing a cross, usually at lower right of the image), which, when clicked upon, will return you to the previous page/gallery.
  • DEMU” appears several times in the text below and stands for “diesel-electric multiple unit”. The “DE” stands for “Diesel-Electric” and refers to a coach or carriage that carries people but is powered by its own on-board diesel engines, driving an electrical generator/motor combination. The “MU” stands for “Multiple Unit” and refers to the fact that several such coaches may be coupled together and the complete “train” controlled/driven from any coach within the train. This saves reversing and/or de-coupling when a coach is needed to go the other way. Similarly, a “DMU”, is a “Diesel Multiple Unit” where the power comes, directly, from a diesel engine.
