Date: 1967

Set number: BL527

A very rare picture of a Class 120 with yellow cab doors, seen at Swindon in summer '67. The first of the class in blue/grey, the paint date on the solebar reads 5/6/67, and the set number is also on the solebar - BL527. The other two vehicles in the set remained in green, W50650 (pictured) was possibly painted singly as a trial for approval before more of the class was done. David Faircloth.
