Bronski Beat

Small Town Boy

Mark Evans reports: "The video for Bronski Beat's 1984 single, Smalltown Boy, tells the tale of the singer/hero (Jimi Somerville) escaping his oppressive home town in the forlorn hope of seeking a better life in London.
From the windows of the Class 210 DEMU (thanks Geoff Cook) on which he is travelling, the closed AEC factory at Southall can be recognised. At the time, it was used for the storage of withdrawn London Transport DMS-class Fleetlines (specifically the Leyland B20 variant), which can be seen - albeit as a blur - from the train."
Also visible are MD class Scania Metropolitans and AEC Routemasters:
