    Thanks Roger. My notes clearly say 73411 but of course I could've mis-read it for something else... I was 12 at the time and didn't know a tamper from a ballast regulator... ;)

    The 30 1978 build, Series 6, 07's were ordered as 07-32 machines numbered DD 73406 - 73435. DD was the prefix id for self propelled machines. As 6 machines were for 3rd rail areas they were delivered as 07-16 3rd rail machines with 12 tools. The 732xx series numbers were issued in 1979 or 1980. I do not know the actual dates.

    I am surprised that carried 73411 in 1989 as I always saw it as 73278 before then, also Cardiff seems a strange location for a Southern Region machine.

    I've just found a note of seeing this as 73411 in 1989 around Cardiff. There's a photo here of 73411 so it definitely existed at some point but I also see there are earlier sightings of 73278...?
