The same test coaches as seen at Dunbridge on 4th June, and also similar to those of August 2019.

37025 was allocated to Inverness until 19th January 1986, when it was transferred to Eastfield. 37421 was allocated to Inverness from 12th January 1986, following its HGR overhaul and fitting of ETH. One appears to have more or less been swapped for the other in these now far off times.
