F) BRITISH RAILWAYS GREEN (FULL YELLOW ENDS/TOPS NUMBERS)
The early 1970s presented the occasional incongruous mix of colours and lettering styles. This is an example of a locomotive that avoided the blue paint tin long enough to get yellow ends and TOPS numbers.
Detail combination: Production body, Front end doors, Later exhaust, Boiler fitted, Exposed solebars, SKF axleboxes.
Running number example(s): 24090, 24092
Notes/Period: The suggested locos were allocated to Glasgow Eastfield and Crewe Diesel during the period.
