Thanks for the wiring plan too: most helpful.

Mine is R068 B.R. Class 25 Diesel - Blue. The date on the instructions is 14.07.77: looks like I started work just a few years before you!  Silver Seal was how they classified their new models in the 70s. Looking back, it was when they moved from the X04 and equivalent worm drive motor bogies to can style motors.  Having got it out to read the number I opened it up too. The inside looks identical to your photos.

All I need now is time and inclination!

Paul.

Paul,

 

Indeed, I started work in 1980 after spending 3-years at Liverpool University, so I know your 'new' location quite well.

 

Time? Just check your watch .... :haha:

Inclination? Add a gradient to the layout .... :haha:
