    As far as I know, there is only one, and it is the ex-Danish State Railways bogie flat wagon DSB-8959 (the vast majority of our freight rolling stock is BR era, plus several LMS items, and a small but varied selection of other stuff).

    It came to NVR via British Sugar, and was famously used for the filming of Queen's 'Breakthru' video

    WE’RE BACK! (AGAIN!)

    With the slight easing of restrictions we’ve got back on site to attend to some essential maintenance of part of the running rake.
    With eight wagons in the yard at Wansford it was a good opportunity to attend to some pealing paint, rough wood, and leaking roofs.
    We’re striving to keep the running rake running and hope to complete maintenance in time for running again.

    And from earlier in lockdown, a couple of photos from when Tim added the sign writing to the generously donated replacement tarp, and then refitted it to the wagon.
