3 car Swindon Cross Country set C615 (presumably 51781 + 59682 + 51788) stands at Crewe, 28 December 1980. Paul James.

51781 leads 59682 and 51788 as set C615 through Bristol Stapleton Road in 1984. Robert Tarling.
C615 is formed of former ScR vehicles W51788 / W59682 / 51781, and seen at Lawrence Hill in 1984. Robert Tarling.

A Swindon Cross-Country DMBC W51781 at the buffers in Glasgow Central. August 1986. Still carrying its Cardiff set number, W prefix and headlamp bracket, it's now part of a hybrid set - the farthest away vehicle is a Class 107. Andrew McConnell.
51781 was for most of it's life a Scottish vehicle, seen here back in Scotland after several years in Cardiff as can be seen by the set number still carried. Working with Class 120 M59268 + Class 107 51987, this is officially Ayr set 427. Seen in Glasgow Central station on the 7th September 1986, ready to work the 14:05 to Ayr. Hamish Stevenson.
A Class 120 DMU with W51781 at the front is seen in Ayr station on September 22, 1986, beside one of the EMUs which would replace it on the Ayr - Glasgow line. The ex-Cardiff vehicle (sent north to cover for the out-of-traffic Class 107s) was transferred to Haymarket the following week. WS Sellar.
Do you have any images of the set that you can add?
