Class 06 observations in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s - top page

D2425 stabled at Greenock (Ladyburn) depot on 12th August 1965 with another member of the class in the background.   David Bromley

First allocated to Greenock (Ladyburn) in November 1959. It is then recorded as having been transferred to Eastfield in January 1968. Observations received taken along with other information suggest though that it was actually transferred to Polmadie in cJune 1966 and onto Eastfield in January 1968. The RO records that by September 1967 (p.377 11/67) Greenock (Ladyburn) had been replaced by Gourock as a stabling point and the shed was now a heap of rubble. From cJune 1966 the usual two Class 06 and one Class 08 stabled at Gourock were a combination of the last allocated to Greenock (Ladyburn) (D2425/6/7, D3920/1) and those allocated to Polmadie (D2429/31/3, D3905-9/11/27/9). It was withdrawn whilst allocated to Eastfield in June 1968.
