    With most other vehicles reported now moved from Coventry this one remains unaccounted for... VCT suggests move to a "private site" but not sure where or whether this has happened yet? Any more news welcome.

    This van was one of two to be used to provide an electrical supply for the Southern Region "Mobile Control Trains", which were based at Tonbridge Wells West and at Faversham. The Control Trains were in effect mobile telephone exchanges, intended to provide emergency communications in the event of Nuclear War.

    It looks to me very much like a GCR 2-8-0 tender, probably from one of the ex-ROD WW1 surplus locos. I saw a couple of these tenders in the Swindon Works dump in the 1980's

    Hi,

    Can anyone confirm the windows that are blanked on the other side of 977997. I am currently modelling this vehicles but all photos appear to show the same side.

    Rumour I had heard was another operator was interested in buying these off Colas - so this might be the start of them moving elsewhere.

    Reported to be moving to Peak Rail. Last Friday 27/4 I passed Rowsley and there was a coach very similar to this on low loader - looked like it had just arrived. Sadly I couldn't stop that day.
