The rest of the fleet, was also given an interior clear out in preparation. A budget lock in the drivers door on 50416 was also attended to.

Items which had been recovered from the 104 when refurbished ones have been fitted, are in the process of becoming refurbished ready to be fitted to the next cab front which receives attention.

An unusual photo cropped up from Saturday with the 109 sat in the dock, while the 108 passes on a driver experience train. The 109 was used to shuttle people for private tours of Pentrefelin.
