November 14th found D5013 working a Margate - Kettering football special throughout, whilst D5010 took another football special from Ashford to Brentford.

A football match between Dartford & Bristol on November 25th saw two eleven coach specials run. The second one ran with D5013 & D6573 as far as Kensington where Modified Hall 4-6-0 No.6960 took over. More interestingly the first ran with D5009 & D6523 throughout, making the journey via Clapham Junction, Salisbury, Westbury and Bath.

Condition date uncertain: green livery with small yellow warning panels, curved upper corners, warning panel partially covers frame level stripe, full size fuel & water tanks, Athermos axleboxes, two-rung bogie mounted footsteps, steam style shed plate on cab front, ridged sandboxes.

By April two more Class 24ís had been stored: 5013 & 5016.

Condition August (when in store): green livery, small yellow warning panels, squared upper corners; full size fuel tank shortened water tank, valencing mostly in place, Athermos axleboxes, three-rung bogie mounted footsteps.

Front line duty came the way of 5013 on October 1st in rescuing the 1E91 07.45 Liverpool - Newcastle after the diagrammed locomotive failed.

Amongst a series of failures as the day progressed was the loss of 5357/98 scheduled to work the 1V54 Stirling - Newton Abbot motorail service. Grangemouth quickly provided 5013 & 5096 to work the service to Carlisle, however being without working boilers it was possibly a chilly journey.

Condition July: blue/yellow livery, gangway doors sheeted over, full size fuel tank shortened water tank, blanking plates fitted, hand/footholds plated over, ridged sandboxes, two-rung bogie mounted footsteps.
