Withdrawn Class 101 sandite / route learning vehicles, possibly at Longsight, on 26/2/01. The NSE set is 960991 (977896 and 977895) and on the right one half of set 960994. Steve Hodgson.
The former Reading allocated three-car 101 set L838, now branded L991 but still formed DMBS 53308, TCL 59125 and DMCL 53331 and still in NSE livery apparently in passenger service at South Gyle on 22/May/1993. It seems to have a Scottish destination blind and is attached to another set but I'm not sure what the working was. Later that year the set was transferred away from Haymarket, reduced to two cars and renumbered 960991 for sandite use. Robert Chilton.
