    This van appeared on an EWS disposals list a while back but can't really see it being a very attractive proposition to anyone in its current state?!

    Anyone know the ID of the dilapedated van behind?

    Neither myself on this visit or Brian on a subsequent visit saw any ID on this van...

    If you go on the train will you see it or can you walk to it from the station.

    I visited this location on Saturday 23rd May 2015 & there was no sign of this van.

    I can only assume it has now been scrapped

    Not been to Harwich for a while but understand some changes have taken place in order to accommodate HOBC trains. Can anyone with a good knowledge of the vicinity say whether this affected the spot were 041676 was located.

    I presume this was Tony's first visit hunting for the van? If so I wonder if anyone else who has seen it in recent years has re-visited and also could not find it? The reason for asking is that whenever a van body goes missing and is presumed scrapped I always seek conformation that it is no longer present from someone who has actually seen it there in the past. I suspect I am not the only one who has gone hunting for a body and not found it to then be told later "Did you go around the corner and look over the wall" or something similar. A subsequent visit then finds it.

    I came out of Harwich International Station then along Station Road bearing right where the sidings come into view & the site where on Google Earth the vehicle was visible.

    I would obviously like confirmation whether it has been scrapped on site or moved to another area

    The vanfit to the right should be this one

    Assume this one has now gone as no more sightings or comments since these ones above...
