    Are this and 025024 still extant? The Pinnox Branch is seemingly be revamped so I'm wondering if they are still there being left to nature.....were or are they visible from a passing train?

    Unless it was well hidden or has been moved, this appears to no longer be present.

    This one was saved from the scrap man in 1990 and went initially to the South Yorkshire RPS site at Meadowhall. The Meadowhall site was abandoned in 2002 and DE 634355 has since been reported at Bo'ness. I don't think it ever carried its IU number.

    This has been quoted as being one of the four bodies purchased from North Wales Company, (some sources say C. C. Crump), Connahs Quay and moved to Clwyd Council Highways Department yard at Ruthin. Two, this not being one of them, were subsequently donated to the Denbigh & Mold Railway and moved to Bodfari. The other two were scrapped at Ruthin.

    Two though were present at Connahs Quay in the late 1980's and as Roger reports this as being one, the other was 40258. I believe this rules it out as being one of those that went to Ruthin.

The other two were scrapped at Ruthin. It is though possible this was not one of the four and was sold separately for use in Denbigh.

    This was one of the four bodies purchased from North Wales Company, (some sources say C. C. Crump), Connahs Quay and moved to Clwyd Council Highways Department yard at Ruthin. The best two, including this one, were subsequently donated to the Denbigh & Mold Railway and moved to Bodfari.

    Surprised that more of these ADM40xxx van bodies haven't turned up anywhere. Still 3 or 4 bodies at Marple & Gillott's yard at Attercliffe in March 1985. The only other body known is the one at SE Ward (Engineer's) Ltd at Killamarsh which is presumed to be one of those from Marple & Gillott but it has never been positively identified.

    If anyone is interested all of the wagons (bar a VAA van) at Wishaw have been extracted from the undergrowth at the side of the depot and are now at the other side of the yard, with the stored 08s.

    The quoted scrapping date of 3/89 is clearly incorrect, this more likely being the date it was despatched to Long Marston. The July 1990 pictures are I believe taken on the connecting line between the Exchange Sidings and Bird yard where it could still be found in April 1991. As such, if you didn't know it was there easily missed on a visit to the Exchange Sidings or Bird Yard.

    This along with several similar Enparts Vans were disposed of to Marple & Gillott, Attercliffe in late Summer 1984. It is suspected that the bodies of most were sold on for further use, this one included.
