Looking through some old documents, I recently unearthed some useless information about 80 Class formations and liveries in early 1990.

Whilst working in Portrush at that time I made some notes as part of research into the 80 Class with a view to building a set.

The information may be of some use to someone.

Intermediates and driving trailers were swapped around on a regular basis.

That ought to be bookmarked; snapshots in time of formations and liveries are invaluable to historians and modellers alike. While I have to confess to having had too many birthdays to be a fan of "modern" stuff like 80's, I am greatly impressed by the great efforts put in by several modellers on this site into reproducing so well, what isn't the easiest model in the world to replicate.

 

Excellent stuff!
