Set number: 101321

Sthrathclyde-liveried set 101321 (51249 closest, presumably with 59542 + 53146) at Johnstone with the 13:00 Glasgow - Ayr service on August 28th, 1986. Hamish Stevenson.

Set number: 101321

Away from its usual area are cars SC51249 SC59542 SC53146 (101 321) in Strathclyde PTE livery. Although Heaton (HT) depot, Newcastle, received some varied DMUs in Autumn 1987, these cars were never allocated there, so it was probably en route for works attention. Indeed, I photographed this unit at Glasgow in 1990. Graeme Phillips Collection.


Date: 1st August 1990

Set 101 321 seen in Glasgow Central on the 1st August 1990. It was formed of 53146, 59542 and 51249. Graeme Phillips.
