mid-May 1959 - Sc79958/9 had arrived in Hamilton for driver training by mid-May 1959. The former had worked the first month of the Beith branch service - not devoid of failure and replaced by SC79979 (after it had spent several months on the Crieff branch). SC79959 had been on the Aviemore - Elgin line until replaced early in April by Sc79970. The other Park Royal SC79974 was at Ayr.
