Date: September 1973

Still carrying green livery - SC50343 is seen in Edinburgh Waverley station in September 1973. 54A South Dock.


Date: 8th November 1981

With "Handbrake Off" painted on the side, there seems little intention of using 50343 again when seen at Tyseley on 8/11/81. It had in fact been withdrawn in September that year. Chris Lings.
