15/08/79: 47450 in Holyhead shed with 08907. The original 'modification' to the former head-code box cover was often to simply cover/paint the original perspex/glass black with two white dots in the middle. Modifications in the late 70's/early 80's resulted in these being replaced with metal covers and two lenses where the dots were with either flat unopenable lenses for the marker lighting (flat ones were usually at the number 1 end, 432 in the photo on the 1977 page is one of the few I've ever noted with flat lenses at the number 2 end) or fitted with hinged lenses to enable access to the marker light within. 450 above, with the original quick mod appears to have just had some black tape placed over the center - around the edges appears here to still be see through.
