D5014 was one of the Class 24s transferred on loan to Hither Green (73C). It was fitted with headboard brackets for use on the Southern Region's named trains. However over time the brackets from the No.1 cab were removed, possibly because of a full cab replacement at some point. The headboard brackets on the No.2 cab were retained until withdrawal.

On January 11th a damaged D5014 was noted for repair at Derby Works having sustained injury somewhere on the Southern Region.

The BR Sulzer Type 2s still received overhauls at Doncaster, D5014/47/70/71 being so noted during October.
