    This was later allocated IU number 024822 but I'm not sure what has become of this vehicle (and 024497 parked in the same siding - see other photo) because it's not in this position now. I suspect it was scrapped on site but confirmation would be useful.

    It now transpires that the two vehicles were scrapped on site by Booths Rotherham in January 1997...

    hi, if i was to model this coach, is there anything i need to know before converting a standard mk.1 half brake coach? i have all the transfers and paint to make the conversion as well as scratchbuilding the little box shaped thing on the roof.

    ps. i have also converted a lot of other departmental coaches as seen here and this is the first pic ive seen of "phoenix".

    Hey Michael, How did you get on ?. I'm about to embark on a 7mm / O gauge version.
