5 have been transferred to Roskill from Kilbirnie, 2303/6/10/11, maybe 12. Up here temporarily because of heavy passenger numbers. 14 have been bought off Redbus, and were originally numbered in the 1500's, but are now 2300's.

2301/2/8/14 are known to be in a basic Go Wellington colour scheme. Any more known?
