Ian Simpson asked 2 months ago

I am trying to identify the date of a photo of Butler Henderson along with O4 63704 outside Gorton Shed. The notes say that this was taken on 23rd July 1963, yet 63704 was condemned at Retford shed in March 1963. I suspect that the photo was taken in March 1962, when 506 was exhibited at Manchester Central. What would help is if folks could let me know when 506 moved to the BTC Museum at Clapham?
Note that 63704 was ex-works from Gorton on 17th March, so I suspect that this is the 18th March and the O4’s first running-in turn. Any help gratefully received.
