    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

    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!

    Fascinating stuff.

    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.
