53128 (C302) and 53900 (C313) sit side by side in Barry station, 8/8/86. Steve Davies Collection.
C313 (53900 + 59040 + 53847) at Treherbert with the 10:14 to Cardiff Central on the 20th June 1987. Gazza Prescott.
C313 (W53900 + W59040 + W53847) inside a very clean and tidy Cardiff Canton depot on August 4th, 1987. Hamish Stevenson.
Class 116 set C313 (presumably 50847 + 59040 + 50900) grinds up the Rhondda from Pontypridd with a Sunday service from Penarth to Treherbert approaching Trehafod. 13/2/1977. Stephen Burdett.
On 6th August 1979, car no. W50847 was only three weeks out of works, hence its smart appearance. My notes for the day quote it as working the 12.45 Cardiff - Merthyr & 14.00 return, but this latter service appears to be a through train to Barry Island if the destination blind is correct. Cardiff set C313 W50847 + W59040 + W50900. Gerard Fletcher.
A Barry Island service waits to leave a much reduced Merthyr Tydfil station on 20/5/1980. Formed of C313 (presumably 50847 + 59040 + 50900). Stephen Burdett.
