We have met by the way on a Railtour a few years back (we were seated together)

One question - when was 31294 renumbered and when did it enter Donny, because looking at this guys notes he saw it between Glos and Swindon on 2/3/74 - may even have dragged his DMU to Swindon judging by his notes!! Unknowingly he may be one of a few/if the only basher to have it Green TOPS!!

Thanks for the lists.

The meeting possibly on D1015 to Scarborough?

I'm very interested in the 31294 02/03/74 observation. 5827/31294 went to Doncaster on 06/03/74 with EQ and came out on 07/04/74 as blue with dual brakes. Your source records support the story that 5827 was renumbered to 31294 in green: it is likely that the renumbering was done on exam at Old Oak in mid February 1974. What makes you think that 31294 may have been dragging a dmu?

5827/31294 was not the last green class 31: that honour belongs to 5818 which entered Doncaster on 20/03/74. 5803/31273 ought to have been the last but was painted blue at Old Oak in 11/73. There's a faint possibility that Old Oak also painted 5827/31294 blue but the available evidence points to it remaining green until going into Doncaster.

These livery issues really deserve a thread of their own.

Yes Mr C - it was the Scarborough tour.

I sent you some 31 passenger Gen a few weeks later

RE 31294

I will have to ask my mate about 294 hauling the DMU. His notes show 'T' - (travelling) next to a DMU unit number, but it also shows a 'P' (Pulled-by) next to 31294.

RE liveries

I have a Flickr site as well (Gang of 3) and have posted some of Sean Greenslades' notebooks, which have lots of livery etc details, which you have commented on. I have passed on ALL of his notebooks to Chris Parkinson who posted them all into his Flickr site (50048) - so if you want to scour that Gen just take a look!
