    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.

    I've recently added this one as some sightings were submitted. Anyone know former identity? Thanks

    This and the other two former support vans stored here (787106 and 786933) are assumed to have been scrapped at some point after 2014 as they don't appear to have turned up elsewhere. If anyone can tie up dates to any other disposals here that would be useful to add here. Thanks.

    The picture at Cargo Fleet is not of DM395645 but of something else. DM395645 was converted from a bogied coach and the vehicle pictured was converted from a 6-whl LNWR CCT.

    When I became interested in departmental stock this wagon always confused me, despite many visits I could never find it.

    I think it was hidden away in the old CCE depot in the triangle where Rygor Commercials now is?

    975087 was ex Newton Heath along with 975461, around the mid 80's both vans were based out of Longsight I believe.
