L573 Salfords 15 March 1986

L573 (51083, 59417 & 51055) approaches Salfords on 15 March 1986 with the 2O38 15:10 Reading to Gatwick Airport service. The leading vehicle seems to have had an unusual modification to the former destination blind, with what appears to be an oversized blanking plate added, almost giving the impression of a plated over headcode box. Class 119s did not have roof mounted headcode boxes, as originally they were fitted with two rather crude looking separate individual character panels directly below the centre windscreen.
