SC51249 leads this 2-car Met Camm set at Wormit with a Dundee - Newport-on-Tay East working. Taken on the 3rd May 1969, the last day of workings on the line. Note the small (3") numbers on the DMBS, the DTC is in the small yellow panel blue livery. Hamish Stevenson.
Away from its usual area are cars SC51249 SC59542 SC53146 (101 321) in Strathclyde PTE livery. Although Heaton (HT) depot, Newcastle, received some varied DMUs in Autumn 1987, these cars were never allocated there, so it was probably en route for works attention. Indeed, I photographed this unit at Glasgow in 1990. Graeme Phillips Collection.

Class 101 51249, set number T078, is seen stabled outside the factory at Tyseley on 26.12.1990. This had been transferred down from Scotland, and was not one of the refurbished examples. These did make a strange sight working in the West Midlands in their Strathclyde PTE livery. Andy Cole.
