    A lucky find at Holyhead this week - this wagon was thought to have been scrapped a long time ago! However it remains with one other similar Palbrick wagon and an old guards van that could not be identified.

    Looks like it is in need of some "TCL", although the wood parts of the bodywork were originally just the floor planks and four plywood side panels. Would make a straightforward restoration job. Appears to be a Freightliner adaptor wagon. Does anyone know it's original identity? I would mot mind saving it myself, if the current owner could be established and road access for transport was available. Any ideas folks?

    Try contacting Network Rail first - they should be able to do a trace on TOPS and check up on the registered owner/operator.

    I can assure you restoring one of these is far from straightforward as the match wagon changes are quite extensive - see www.palbrick.com for more info on my own example (B462772) which will give you an idea what's involved. I'd love to see this one saved though - if you do decide to go for it, feel free to drop me a line.

    This wagon currently keeps company with another of the same type numbered B 462760 and a guards van 95?236 (thought to be 950236.) All noted still present yesterday.

    A report from site yesterday says that all three have disappeared. The sleepers in the above photo are still across the track so cut-on-site seems to be the most likely explanation...

    The two wagons and the brake van that where on this site have been saved, all have gone to the Tanat Valley Railway at Nantmawr nr Oswestry.

    Assuming the photos on VCT are correct, the 024682 is actually at Llanddu Junction, whilst the Palbrick at Nantmawr is 462760
