    An interesting history to this one (thanks to Kevin for the notes!) It had its asbestos removed by Vic Berry (hence the signs) before moving to Cathays where it was pencilled in to be converted to another ultrasonic test coach similar to the current 977391 and 977392. However this was cancelled and it was moved to Radyr shortly afterwards and ended up spending at least 3 years stored here (1990-3) before (unusually?) being scrapped at MCMetals, Glasgow in June 1993. Most of the stored vehicles at Radyr ended up going to Gwent Demolition at Margam. Its also interesting to see this received its 977393 number on the side even though the conversion was cancelled.
