Sandite car TDB977486, formerly class 121 driving trailer 54285, standing at Tyseley depot on 15/Jul/1992. Curiously almost every single window has been plated over, including two of the windscreens, leaving a rather more restricted view than usual ahead, although the headcode panel, long disused, remains unplated. Unfortunately the vehicle could only be viewed by peering through a fence making a photo of the complete vehicle impossible. Robert Chilton.
