Eric Thompson Memorial Collection

Eastern National 2928, AVW397F, Bristol FLF / ECW. New July 1968, converted to OMO May 1973, but unlike 2926, which was converted by EN at Central Works, the work was carried out by Marshall of Cambridge.
In July 1974, further rebuilding was undertaken by EN, including the reversal of the staircase and reseating from H40/30F to H37/30F, but even this did not result in successful OMO working of FLFs. This photo is therefore quite unusual as it shows 2928 in her short lived period between Marshall and EN rebuilding. In the background, Basildon railway station is being constructed and a train can be seen passing through. 2928 was withdrawn in December 1980.

Photo taken by Eric Thompson, Tuesday 28 August 1973, Basildon Bus Station
