I visited Laira in the summer of 1973 and there were a few withdrawn 'Western' Class 52s without name- or number-plates. I have a photo of one of them which my notes say is D1045 WESTERN VISCOUNT. A number of websites tell me this loco was still running a year later (and there are photos to prove it). I'm wondering whether my photo is of another Western, as removing the plates, then re-instating them seems an odd thing for the depot to do. Can anyone shed any light on which Western this is? Note: the Western next to it (with plates) is definitely D1060 WESTERN DOMINION. The photo was taken on Wed 1st August 1973.
