    This has been confirmed by its owner as the van which once resided at Thurso, then moved north to the owner's garden near Brough but is now back in a yard in Thurso again! It carries no ID but is almost certainly this van.

    Not present at Thurso on 11/08/1982 when 096035 was present.

    Bizarre movement history for a van body ! did someone get the guilts about 'acquiring' it ;o)

    It is - but Brian spoke to the owner Bernard Heath before his trip so it should hopefully be accurate!

    Regarding 096035 we think this may be the van opposite the station - photo on the site tomorrow. It looks to be the same type as this one but it will be good to get some expert feedback!

    This van seems to be an LMS D1676 vehicle, see LMS Wagons Vol 1 p129 (R.J.Essery), numbers were allocated randomly so former identity could be anything. Built 1924-28.

    So ID of TDM120434 shown in various books may be wrong???

    I should think that M120434 is correct, I don't believe there was a former identity shown on this site when I made that earlier remark. Either that or I am going mad !

    No the previous IDs for these two have always been there I'm afraid! Assume what is in the old IU book? Both have TDM numbers which I assume fits with the LMS design...?

    Someone out there nows the ID of this van :-) Bernard told me that an enthusiast visited many years ago before he took the van to Brough and asked him if he could have the plate(s) off it, Bernard helped him take them off....LOL.

    This one was still present though today in the private yard near station (but visible from Lovers Lane.)
