Anybody know why this unit had a red cantrail strip. I assume that it denoted its departmental status.

This unit later received a strange version of what can only be described as a "reversed regional railways-type" livery. Did it survive into preservation? The GRCW style has a pleasant old-fashioned look about it.

I thought the unit which received the livery modifications referred to above circa 1985 was DB 975637 & DB 975664 which were I believe were disposed of by Mayer Newman? at Snailwell, after a period dumped at Cambridge after withdrawal. I am not sure where DB 975349 & DB 975539 were disposed of but the presence of blue asbestos in both units sealed their fate. I thought DB 975349 & DB 975539 remained as pictured until disposed of.

If only you could search for each vehicle's disposals on this website eh?!
