    Not sure Ian... I have a vague memory there was a van here for a long time but it wasn't an IU?

    Ten years after the comments on this vehicle, it seems some chaps at the GCR have built a new diesel tender!

    Hi Peter - I've been in touch and am very reliably informed that your hunch is correct - it is stored in the goods shed.

    Not seen on visits made to Shildon on 20th May 2017 and 24th October 2018. Only possible location where it could be hidden was the locked Goods Shed. NRM website says on display at Shildon! Anyone any knowledge of the precise current location of this?

    The vehicle behind the Class 84 is RDB975635, otherwise known as PC4. PC3 didn't have any windows at all on that side.

    All that splendid welding and repainting has been done by Shane Wilton, and it's looking a lot better now that it's under cover at the Battlefield Line.

    I'm pretty sure this last sighting is in error, and should in fact be NR test coach 999606 and not 99606, in which it doesn't even carry now anyway..

    I established a few years ago that this had left Titley Junction but enquiries to date as to where it went have drawn a blank. The fact that no one has yet come across it and reported a sighting suggests the location may be away from a publicly accessible heritage location.

    Anyone any clues as to where it might be?

    If it helps clarify things, the buffer type fitted to the van at the Bluebell matches those fitted to 083402 in the photos on this site, but do not match those fitted to 083403.
