    This was apparently not present at Wishaw in December. Subsequent enquiries suggested it was now at Barrow Hill but no reports of it arriving, departing or being seen there have been traced. Can anyone confirm its current whereabouts?

    Yes, confirmed at ELR in October. It was in the sidings at Buckley Wells, west of the line south from the station from which a reversal is made to gain access to the works.

    My records indicate that this van was sent to Mangapps under number E141183. If this is so, which E number is correct?

    Possibly still at York along with DB975081 but if so the lack of sightings suggest they are tucked away in Holgate Works.

    However I do believe two carriages were moved from York to Burton-upon-Trent in the latter half of 2017 and have never been sure as to their identities.

    Thus quite possible DB975081 and DB975280 are at Burton-upon-Trent now.

    As Phil said, the current plan is to use this as a donor chassis. Although at the moment, the wagon is currently being made fit to move. The one buffer was loose so that has been reattached, and the brakes have been freed off and a handbrake lever reattached.

    This wagon has recently moved to the Great Central Railway, currently at Quorn. It is currently planned to be used as a donor chassis for another project rather than restored in its own right.

    This Railbus was shipped to Northern Ireland on 5th August 1982.

    I am trying to find out when & where the re-gauging from Standard Gauge to 5ft 3in Gauge.

    I know it ran trials on the Bristol - Severn Beach line from October 1981 - April 1982 and then ran demonstrations between Barnsley & Sheffield.

    There was a Vanwide body at Bored Bar Engineering but the number wasn't visible through the fence. It was still here on 16/2/15 but the company appears to have ceased trading in early 2016 and the body was removed c2016 (by 3/2/17).

    This was not a test car. It was Test Service Car No8 and was used primarily in the APT-P power car test train as a surrogate trailer rake
