Between 19th May and 2nd June the "Transpo '73" Exhibition was held at No. 6 Dock, Port of Manchester. The Railway Magazine (July 1973 edition) reports that "three-coach exhibition trains featuring respectively "Electrification" and the " Great British Investment" were present. The presumed formations of these are shown below, confirmation would be welcomed as so far only the Great British Investment train has appeared in photographs.
