Glasgow 1089 seen at Clydebank had a Glasgow Car Works body on Brill 77E1 bogies. It had been new in August 1926 as an experimental car intended for high speed operation and a photograph seems to suggest that it had a seating capacity of 32, 24 of which were transverse ones.
In March 1943 the seating was re-arranged longitudinally and in December 1951 it was rebuilt with half of the longitunial seats removed, retaining 20 seats with provision for 38 standing passengers, and intended for use on shipyard services.
