    At Fawley Hill today noted a 2nd Shark B/V in grey. Was advised by someone there that they had done a swap with a GW Toad to Isfield, so presumably the Shark was 993762, but it had no number. Assume Toad 68564 now at Isfield. Reason was that the Toad had too long a wheelbase for Fawley Hill apparently.

    I can confirm that the wheelbase of the Toad was too long for the curves at the bottom of the hill!

    B024798

    Hope I have the number correct. This is a standard BR box van with planked sides, parked OOU inside the abandoned Buxton DMU depot for many years. That has recently been demolished and the contractors created a road access of sorts in the process. The van is now at Wirksworth and restoration has begun. The van will be restored with its current Enparts markings, "to work between Buxton TMD and Longsight only". I think there are only two more of these left on the network.

    TPO 80377 was delivered to Ribble Steam Railway from Kirklees on Thursday 6th October, required large crane at Kirklees to lift the body from bogies, & then re-unite on low loader.

    TPO is due to become a static Museum exhibit, open to the public shortly.

    Blood & Custard Mk.1 seen on A38 going south today. Looks to have been partly overhauled. Any idea of where to?

    No idea of the haulier; I just saw it going past as I was heading north. Can't remember exactly where but it was on the A38 somewhere between Brum & the M1. Probably around 14.30-15.00. Although basically in blood & custard, significant areas had received an application of a metal primer,

    Last week I saw a loco heading southbound on (I think) the M5. Looked to be an 0-4-0WT, similar to 'Willy' based at the Flour Mill, but unrestored.
    Any ideas?

    Could well be. I seem to remember that there was a bit more primer on but that could well be the case with the other side.

    Unfortunately FO 3097 can be ruled out as it arrived at Eastleigh Works some weeks prior to the A38 sighting.

    The A38 carriage still remains a mystery.
