I was kind of hoping to avoid a repaint on the bubble car even thought the lining was closer to a class 121 than a 122, but when  tried to remove the number and the roundels (which were off register) the underlying paint came with it so a repaint it was.

I toyed with doing 55012 as it has a local significance.  Being one of a few bubble cars that on the Stourbridge Town shuttle had a bit of a problem and ended up hanging over the road (see https://www.flickr.com/photos/69498057@N03/6353358089) but ironically I had already done it for New Street.  I don’t recall selecting it specially so 55018 it was instead.
