In the late 1960s, a power-twin in mixed liveries is seen approaching Leeds City from the ex-Midland Woodlesford/Normanton route. The BR logo on the driver's door suggests the blue car had previously carried the early livery with small yellow ends. First class totems are visible in the windows of the saloon nearest the camera, but no yellow stripe is applied. Graeme Phillips Collection.
