A close up of the bodyside number on M53467 shows evidence of its renumbering from M50467 in July 1983. I had ridden on this 2-car set during a visit to Manchester on 28th January 1984. Taken at Springs Branch in June 1985. S Gaskell.

Date: June 1985

A sad end for burnt out Newton Heath allocated Class 104 set 53467 + 53519 which was withdrawn in April 1985. DMCL 53519 is nearest the camera in the old steam shed sidings at Springs Branch in June 1985. The whole set was later covered in plastic sheeting, presumably due to asbestos contamination.
