Ardrossan Harbour, May 1985, in the immediate pre-electrification period. 101322 (with 51250 presumably closest) appears to be stabled near the site of where the new Harbour station is now located. Scanned from a slide given to me by a former railwayman. Gordon Thomson Collection.
The driver of Class 101 DMBS Sc51250 changes ends at Girvan. The high speed run down from Ayr has blown the windie wipers clean off the screens. Girvan. August 1986. Andrew McConnell.

Class 105 DMBS 51269 at the head of a Glasgow Central - Largs service at Paisley Gilmour Street on 14/7/86. It had been transferred from Norwich a few weeks before, the NC set number 51 has been partially peeled from the left cab window. The vehicle is in plain blue livery, the vehicles behind (59069 and 51250) are in blue/grey as evidenced by the open doors. Dennis Taylor.
Recently transferred from Scotland, set 101322 consisting of SC53159 + SC59069 + SC51250 at Newcastle on 1/10/87, receiving attention from fitters. Unusually, the leading vehicle retains the top marker light above the destination blind - these were usually removed upon refurbishment in late 1970s / early 1980s. Graeme Phillips Collection.
