Notes

29/03/91 - 51941 + 52064 arrived at the Severn Valley Railway. They were a replacement for 53454 + 53528 which were originally destined for the line but were found to contain asbestos between the underframe and floor. The 108 set, T068, was made available instead after a proposed sale to Balfour Beatty for a Channel Tunnel inspection unit was cancelled.
