    Was very interested to receive this photo recently! These wagons are apparently in a siding at the east end of the HST shed, just opposite the OTP depot. It is thought the lowmac may be 061030 or 061084 - both formerly based around this area but not noted since 1996! I don't think it carries any ID at all. The van on the right is unlikely to be from the IU series but is clearly some sort of stores van.

    Any more info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    The van could be 200663, as this has been reported at Bristol St. Phillips Marsh in the past....

    After very close inspection by a member of staff - "904539" has been found to be stamped into the frame of the Lowmac which of course makes this 061030. Almost certain Phil's assumption about the van being 200663 is also correct.

    A lowmac very similar to this one (061030) was coupled to 083439 at Wimbledon today. Any idea on its ID?

    Both of these vehicles are still on site and are still in roughly the same position as in this picture and are visible from the main road bridge as seen by me on 8th January 2011

    Rumour that both of these wagons were due to go to a preservation site soon. Move before Christmas was postponed but any more news welcome.

    These two departed SPM yesterday for preservation at the Swindon & Cricklade Railway.

    200663 is a VDA, not a VBA.These are markedly different designs.
