    A few sightings of this have been added over the last few months but I have no details. Appears it may be (or have last been) at Great Central but it isn't on VCT wagon database. Any more info out there please?

    Shocvan B852500 to IU P3/73

    Please bear with me. Peter Hall has just e-mailed me with a conflicting number. Have checked my records and have two numbers for this from different sources one of which concurs with Peter. Not sure which is right at the moment.

    Yes B852838 has also been quoted...

    I have B852500 as converted to 024219 03/1973

    024220 ex B852838 03/1973

    Yes Andy and John are correct, my mistake, wires crossed somewhere in the past. So 024220 was B852838 and I have a photo to follow!!

    852838 is the van at GCR if that helps.
