    It seems this van has now moved again - across to the up yard but we're not sure when this happened. If anyone can add any more info on this please leave a comment.

    Just following up to see if anyone can confirm exact location of this vehicle . from views I have seen of the Up Yard at Worksop there looks to be rows of wagons blocking views from the main line & there is no obvious public access from the other side of the yard

    If we are talking of the yard on the north side of the running lines, access always used to be from the far western end up near the road overbridge.

    Thanks Peter ,just had a look on Google Earth can see where you mean

    I tried unsuccessfully to see this vehicle earlier this week.

    Wasn't visible from passing train & the yard access is under lock & key with no staff at this location to ask if it still there

    Hi Brian

    I went to Worksop earlier this year to look for this vehicle without success.

    Could you please confirm where it can be viewed from

    Best Regards

    I am told by a Northern conductor who passes regularly that viewing from passing trains is currently not possible. Apparently a rake of wagons has been awkwardly placed to prevent viewing.

    Thanks Peter, I would be interested to know where Brian viewed it from!

    Tony, sorry for the late reply. The van is located at Grid Ref SK 57111 80526, more or less next to the fence, it's easily viewed from a coach company yard if you can get permission to enter their premises.

    I walked the yard yesterday and can confirm the van is still there in the bushes behind the rakes of stored coal wagons
