The rear end of 977815 has been ripped off when seen at Booths yard in Rotherham on 11/5/96. Normally the ends on a Class 108 were formed of steel, and the joint to the alloy bodyside was a source of corrosion. S Gaskell.
Note the extremely small number on 977815 when seen at CF Booths on 11 May 1996. With various parts marked for saving for further use, the missing rear end lets us see into the toilet compartment and the later type sink pedestal fitted during refurbishment. S Gaskell.

The new order at Weston-super-Mare. It’s Tuesday March 29 1988 and Leyland 155325 has just arrived on a press demonstration run from Westbury. Meanwhile, B965 (54203 + 53620) arrives on a Taunton train. Just visible in the ‘six-foot’ are tubs of daffodils, the station staff’s attempt to brighten the surroundings. Mel Holley.
