    Although there is some debate about the number visible on this wagon it seems this is likely to be 060973 (ADB 909069.) Brian had noted a faded 909062 so any confirmation would be good please!

    Seeing this photo almost 100% confirms Brian's more recent photo IS 060973 so this wagon does still exist at Laira.

    This wagon is now located on the South Devon Railway and is now owned by the Devon Diesel Society and is nearing the end of a major refurbishment that has seen the body lifted, bogies and brake gear overhauled, and all decking replaced.

    The engine mounts, added at Laira, are being retained at present as the vehicle will first be used to carry the power unit out of Class 50 D402 whilst this is under overhaul. When this work is complete the mounts will be removed and the vehicle will be used as part of the SDR's PW train.

    Painting is nearly complete and we would welcome any details about what lettering was/should be applied to the wagon and in what location.

    Regards

    Andy Matthews

    Chairman

    Devon Diesel Society.
