    These coaches are apparently still in use - James tells me:

    "These are both used as stores/offices and are, despite appearances, still in use. Inside there is no particular interior, only the bulkhead between the passenger and luggage areas remain."

    After some initial confusion about these two coaches it has been confirmed that this is definitely 024909! Brian tells me:

    "Can confirm that 9406 is at the south end against the blocks and 9423 is at the north end. 9423 has its number stencilled in large black letters on the glass of what would have been the window on the guards door at the north end of the coach. 9406 number is visible through the paint only."

    Apologies for digging up old ground but both SCT and LRWS have this coach down as 9106 ?

    As per the comment above we have established for definite the former IDs but a while ago we swapped the IU numbers (contrary to what is printed in the books) but I can't remember how we arrived at that conclusion! ie 9406 as 024909 and 9423 as 025000. I guess they have never carried the IU numbers so maybe no one knows?!

    I dont have my emails to hand from the time (April 2006?) - anyone shed any light please or do I have to swap the IDs and photos back to match what is in the books?

    These were moved to the south of the station last Sunday along with IC liveried BG 92193 that has been north of the station for many years. It is thought they may be moved to the docks (possibly with the OHLM coaches) for movement by road... Any more news welcome!

    Just hope that NR aren't trying to steal DBS stock. Plus, I wonder who gave them FTR's?
