DMU

Date: 12th March 1966

A two-car Class 108 and three-car Class 107 arrive into Gourock with a service from Glasgow on March 12, 1966, the last day of semaphore signals. The DTC on the 108 seems to be 56202, which means the power car closest is almost certainly 50611. They had been transferred from the NER the previous month, the power car has a distinct darker patch under the Sc where the previous prefix had been painted over.
