Set Numbers

In late '59 the WR allocated set numbers. Cross Country sets were generally 5XX, and carried a depot code prefix. The numbers were displayed on small rectangular plates bixed in clips to the solebars of the power cars only. An example, noted in 12/59 was: TYS 504 - 50661 / 59269 / 50710.
