Yard service B units
A few B units remained in normal use as late as 1983. Their utilization was a problem due to lack of a cab they required special attention when being marshalled in a consist. It was decided to assign a B unit in the middle of each of the two 3 unit hump sets used at Alyth. This solved a problem and eliminated maintenance of an unnecessary cab on a GP which could be assigned elsewhere. A further two units were planned for Toronto Yard but this was cancelled. In 1996 the two units were modified to slugs and renumbered. Retired 6/1999.
