Report Date Title Report Source
31/07/1947 Ashford Works No. 1783 has been equipped with a short circuiting bar for use during emergency on third rail. This is housed in a box attached to the back of the tender; the tender number is on the box. Conversion of 1831 to oil burning is going ahead fairly rapidly. The tender is completed and engine about half-ready. SLS/194709
03/01/1950 Ashford Works Locomotives in Works on 3/1 included Nos. 1266/67/93, 1309/24, 1553, 31610. 1623/72, 31729, 1783/93, 31806, 1807, 31831/63, 1864. Locomotives ex Works (late December-early January) painted black and fully lined, with the crest, were Nos. 31145, 31811/38, 32465. 32585. 'D.3' No. 32380 is expected to appear in lined black, as also have Nos. 32388/93 recently, so it would appear that complete extinction of this class is not at present contemplated. SLS/195002
