    It is 68501 in Arlington Green, preparing for a new life as a translator. One of the other two will follow, with the remaining vehicle probably scrapped.

    One of the de-icer cars, and I suspect that it is 68504, has been repainted at Eastleigh to either Arlington or Southern Region green. The reasons for this are unknown.

    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.
