One week after its final classified repair 55003 (D9003) "MELD" is seen at King's Cross on the 8th March 1979.
On this day the loco is known to have worked to York via the 1L15 16:08 King’s Cross - York service, however appears to be departing the terminus rather than arriving. Possibly having been released from a preceding train.
