E50346 at March on a very damp August 17th 1979 in ex works condition with domino style headcode display.

Class 100 Gloucester 53355 and Cravens Class 105 53812 were the last two asbestos free types of their respective classes in service, and both were formed into a two-car set for their last period of operation. On August 11th 1984 the unit was departing from Bamber Bridge whilst working a Colne to Preston service. Class 40 40118 was in the adjacent loop awaiting to reverse an engineers train into the nearby DCE sidings at Brownedge. When finally withdrawn in 1988 53355/53812 were destined for the NRM at York, but whilst in storage at Crewe both cars were vandalised beyond repair and were subsequently scrapped by Vic Berry at Leicester.
