In June 1966 the Scottish Region added set numbers to the DMUs operating in the South Glasgow Area (Hamilton, Ayr and Corkerhill allocations) as a means of improving punctuality, servicing/maintenance, cleaning and fuelling.
The scheme was extended to include the units operating into the Glasgow North area in November 1966, adding set numbers to the units allocated to Leith, Dundee and Kittybrewster.
