A hybrid Haymarket 3xx set 3-car set with two Class 101 power cars and a Class 110 centre car. Date unknown, probably mid-late 1980s. Seen about 1/2 mile east of Hartwood, heading towards Shotts. The HA castles on the power car seems to have been unique to set 356 (they were normally on the centre car) so this would make the vehicles 53253 + 59696 + 51496. Andrew McConnell.
