    was that the lowmac that 2 class 31's ran away into in the 1980's launching it through the stopblock?

    16 June 2011 - Paul Cheesemore

    Its well covered by vegitation now - the milepost marker in the photo is "242/II" and the wagon is behind this on the nth side of the line

    I cannot for the life of me match up this location on Google Earth to try and see this vehicle....does it even still exist?? Can anyone help please, I'll be travelling past here next Wednesday...

    To add to my comment, I mean the exact location of where the photograph was taken...

  • 25 July 2019 - Ben Williams

    I've had a look too and afraid I can't remember where I saw it in 2009 although I was passing on train too. I suspect it may have moved since the photo as it doesn't seem to appear on Google views. It was seen in Feb this year though...

  • 25 July 2019 - Dan Adkins

    As far as I know it's still there, but not visible at all in the summer months.

  • 25 July 2019 - Greg Hartle

    Thanks for the info guys, yes Ben that's what made me think it may still be extant...and Dan, I can imagine that's the case as the comment from Paul in 2011 suggests it's 'blending in', but even so I still can't work out exactly where it should be found at Tavistock.Is it the yard area near the derelict parcel van? Or is it nearer the main line before the yard junction coming from the east? Puzzled...

    It looks like it's further east from the main yard, visible from the "buyology" car park...

    Brilliant cheers Vince! Great help, had a look on Google Earth again and I can see where it is now, behind the milepost but.....completely engrossed in a bush! I'll have a quick butcher's when I head past, but will need an eagle eye to try and spot a buffer or two sticking out!

    This rusting vehicle is indeed visible (both ends and a little of the side) on the right hand side travelling from the east or left when coming from the west.Look out for Buyology, which is just before or after Tavistock Yard depending which direction you're travelling.It appears when their car park does..
