Haymarket HA allocated 27204 stands light engine at Perth General, awaiting a path running South. You can see this loco has the later vertical drop cab side window and still carries the eth jumper cables (on cab front above the nearside buffer) from its days as a push/pull loco on the Glasgow - Edinburgh shuttles.

This loco was originally delivered from BRCW in July 1962 as D5403, being converted to 27122 in the 1970s. In 1975, Glasgow works converted it to the 27/2 sub-class, fitting it with eth for top & tail duties on the accelerated 90mph Edinburgh - Glasgow shuttles. Along with others of its class, it was restored to normal working as 27058, eventually being scrapped in August 1987 at Vic Berry, Leicester.
