Unidentified passenger vehicle at Snow Hill, c.1957

Recommended Posts

Good evening.

 

I recently bought a photo of 7828 Odney Manor at Birmingham Snow Hill from the RS Carpenter collection. The picture is undated beyond 'c. 1957'. In the background, in the Wolverhampton and Stourbridge line bay, 2 passenger vehicles are partly visible, one of which has the number W50101. Was this a DMU or a coach? I have no coach or DMU reference books and an online search has drawn a blank.

 

Thanks to anyone with any information on the point.

W50101is a 116 vehicle, IIRC a driving motor second (DMS).  New in 1957 it would have been in unlined green livery.  The adjacent vehicle would presumably be a the centre trailer of the 3 car set (TS), with the DMBS brake vehicle being out of shot.   These sets were not gangwayed at this time.
