Condition July: green livery with yellow warning panels, squared upper corners, warning panel does not cover frame level stripe, shortened fuel tank, full size water tank, blanking plates fitted, hand/footholds present, three-rung bogie mounted footsteps, ridge sided sandboxes, locomotive is in ex-works condition.

During November a local bus strike on Tyneside required the strengthening of many local diesel multiple unit services. On November 23rd authorities did not have a multiple unit available for the 17.40 Newcastle - Carlisle (and 19.55 return), a scratch set of four coaches and no heat 5105 was used. The mild weather and pre-heated stock presumably kept the passengers reasonably comfortable.

Condition final: blue/yellow livery, gangway doors sheeted over, headcode discs centered on cab front, shortened fuel tank, no water tank, hand/footholds plated over, three-rung bogie mounted footsteps, flat sided sandboxes.
