    Anyone know if this was allocated set number T01 or perhaps T001? seems to make sense but records here on the "Unit Formations" page list T02 and then T003 onwards to T009 (although we don't seem to have anything for T008?)

    Hi Ben, apparently not. According to the excellent Railcar website this unit, like most Class 122s, saw only a short passenger career. This particular vehicle became a route learner as early as November 1969 but it carried no set number, just its bodyside TDB number. By 1990 it was carrying set No.L119 and eventually it became a sandite vehicle, with its TDB number changing to ADB. Eventually it metamorphosed into set 122019 then 960015. She was the last Class 122 in service.

    The website also gives the history for 975023 (ex-55001) which is perhaps where the confusion lies? This unit carried set L101 for a time, then the L1 part was painted over leaving it carrying just set number 01.

    Hope this helps.
