28/04/1947 St Rollox Works Nos. 14332, 14350, 14442, 15131 and 15357 were towed to Kilmarnock for breaking up on 28/4. H.R. No. 103 still carries the same boiler as at grouping, i.e. Class N 73, No. 1341. C.R. No. 123 now carries a Class N 17 boiler (No. 954) ex 4-4-0 No. 14111, whereas it originally had an unclassified boiler (No. 82). Ex L. & N.W.R. railcar No. R29988 which had been lying in the dump since 27/2/47 (following a collision) entered the C. & W. shop on 22/4. Nos. 15175, 16373 and 17390 have been fitted with snugs to hold the smoke-box door (as fitted on the late standard 'Compounds,' Class 2P, etc.); the handwheel is still retained, but is bolted to the door. SLS/194706
31/05/1947 St Rollox Works No. 14398 Ben Alder has been given a complete overhaul here (31/5). 'Clan' goods No. 17954 left the works w/e 10/5 and operated from Balornock for a few days, but on 17/5 it was being used by Polmadie, as shed pilot. A further 'Clan' goods, No. 17956 , arrived for repair on 21/5. C.R. No. 123 has now had all brass and copper work polished, also the buffer heads. No. 16027 (4A) arrived for repair on 3/5 and still carries the C.R. building plates, which read: 'St. Rollox Works, 1895.' It is interesting to note that whilst this is a Macintosh engine, it is fitted with Drummond type wheels, i.e., with 8 T-section spokes, instead of the standard 12-spoke design. The only withdrawn loco. at present (1/6) on the dump is ex G. & S.W.R. 2-6-0 No. 17829 . SLS/194708
02/02/1948 St Rollox Works The first locomotive to bear the words 'BRITISH RAILWAYS' on the tender was Class '5' No. 5081 (Tender 9069), which was painted black; the lettering on the tender was in white 8' unshaded Gill Sans letters, with sufficient space between the words for the insertion of a crest. This was followed by No. 5082 (Tender 9005) on 4/2, which had been painted in the same style; both locomotives had the number prefixed by an 'M.' No. 6143 , the first 'Scot' to be repaired here since Pre-war days, arrived at the Works on 10/12 and, following a complete service repair, was despatched on 25/12; its original maroon livery having been cleaned and retouched. H.R. No. 103 and C.R. 123 have now been moved to the Varnish Shop SLS/194803
