    Nice photo-but surely, this is the same photo of 977391, NOT 977392. Could we have the correct photo please.

    Does the paint ever get chance to dry on this unit? It's pictured at various times in the old BR research livery, a mixture of SERCo grey/red & Railtrack blue/green, Railtrack blue/green & finally Network Rail yellow!

    This unit was not thought to be present at Churet Valley after a recent comprehensive visit to all locations by one of my trusted regulars! Anyone any ideas pls?

    I think I read somewhere that it has been sold on.

    Confirmed by someone at the railway that it is still present but due to be scrapped...

    Any reason? It didn't look in too bad a condition last summer, unless it has been vandalised/stripped of metal. The CVR seem to be having a bit of a purge at the moment.

    I think the main reason was "it's different"
