Noted in blue livery by June.

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.

24105 was withdrawn on October 5th 1975.
