AFAIK it used the standard Leyland national blind setup so was fitted as though there were to be 3 numbers at the side like on a bus. I think one even retained the gear for the numbers (142019 possibly) although obviously never used as they don't need route numbers on a train.

It'd be great though to say how many seats are left vacant / or perhaps how many minutes late it was running! ;)

Thank you. It was something of a Inquisitive query but that makes sense.

142019 was the unit that retained the number blinds obviously not used or on show as the 142s did use the same blind set up as a leyland national bus. Some time around 2005 the 142s had the leyland type boxes removed and a standard 143 144 blind box fitted with the handle coming down into the cab.
