DMBS 51455 calls at Barnsley with the 11:10 Sheffield - Leeds in 1988. It appears to have been recently transferred from Scotland, it having the remnants of a 101xxx TOPS unit number visible below the driver's front window, plus it appears to have had some lettering painted out behind the driver's door, probably TransClyde or ScotRail.
