Sc51047 COND at Thornhill, March 1982. Sc51047 in a rake of withdrawn Swindon DMU vehicles at Thornhill sidings in transit to their final destination, the boarded up windows indicating that the vehicle is contaminated with blue asbestos. When researching the scrapping date for this vehicle I discovered that Sc51047 was involved in an accident at Kyle Street Sidings (adjacent to Ayr station) 20/6/61. The set had been routed into a siding containing four tank wagons instead of into an adjacent empty siding. The cab front was quite badly stoved in. The vehicle was repaired and remained in service until 11/81. Andrew McConnell.
