A Swindon Inter-City at Beith North, just north of Glengarnock with Sc51025 leading, circa 1982. As the DMBS vehicle determines the unit number it was unusual for a Swindon DMS to carry it and Sc51025 unusually (and incorrectly in this period) carried 126418. It did however make the vehicle easy to identify even in blurry shots 30-odd years later... Andrew McConnell.
126 418 at Prestwick in 1982. One of the last few Intercity sets in its last summer of operation. Andrew McConnell.
Swindon 3-car "Intercity" Class 126 DMU 126418 (DMS SC51025 nearest camera) at Largs with a train for Glasgow Central - c.1979. 53A Models of Hull Collection.
Unit 126 418 heads a 6 car set departing Platform 13 of Glasgow Central for Ayrshire in 1982. Andrew McConnell.
126418 in Glasgow Central, probably taken in 1982. Intermediate power car Sc51025 is closest, one of only a handful to carry the set number on the plated-over gangway, on most sets only the DMBS carried this detail. Ian MacDonald.
The Papal visit to Bellahouston Park in 1982 required the use of a large number of extra trains - as a result most of the then surviving Class 126 units were mobilised. Sc51026 is seen here in the (now former) carriage sidings at Smithy Lye on 01/06/82. As the DMBS vehicle determines the unit number, it was unusual for a Swindon DMS to carry a set number.
