Set 101363 at Stirling on 23/05/1984. Car numbers are 53144 + 59049 + 53746. The leading car unusually retains the central marker lights (top and bottom) and the top one even looks like it might be switched on, though there is no glass lens - both these central lights were usually removed upon refurbishment. The full length uninterrupted cantrail rain strip suggests the vehicle has been refurbished. Graeme Phillips Collection.
