I have to agree with Albert, between 1977 and 1989, when I used to see
quite a lot of 46s, I never once saw a single unit that didn't have both
pans raised, and if there was more than one on the train, they only had one
pan each raised. I asked a driver about it once and he said it had
something to do with the "airgaps" in the overhead.
