    Assume this to be another departmental that never carried its allocated number.

    There's what looks like a rusty filing cabinet with a white bin stuck on it, but A) it's +by+ the side, not +on+ the side, and B) my description is useless, as it's probably some important piece of rail equipment I'm not familiar with!

    Either that or you really are talking about the graffiti. Which appears to say "Upism"!

    The lettering on the far end says "IC225 Barrier Vehicle". I think the class 91s plus mark 4 stock were originally marketed at Inter-City 225s because they travel at 140miles per hour which is 225 kilometres per hour. The name was later dropped, perhaps because it caused confusion.

    Going back to Jon's original point at the top - I assume you mean the 977435 number! To which I'm not sure if it did...

    Thankyou very much mike. My point understood exactly!

    The rusty filing cabinet is probably a shore to ship supply point for plugging stock in which had either a charging point or a connection for external power to save draining the batteries when static.

    This has now moved to Nemesis premises (!) in Burton, apparently.
