    These two coaches are apparently bought by Booths and may move in the coming week...

    Don't think they have been anywhere!!! Nearly a year on, and I am 99% sure I got a naff photo of them from Cambridge station! Anyone know more? Also, which side of the boundary fence was this photo taken from?

    I believe that Network Rail have now taken ownership of these vehicles. You could possibley make one 'good one' from the pair with time and effort.

    Regarding the comments about the boundary fence - please bear in mind a lot of our contributors work for Network Rail, and the various maint. contractors, TOCs & FOCs so many of them hold PTS cards, etc. and take these photos during slack time in their work.

    This photo was taken on an official visit to inspect the carriages with a view to purchase. Yes they do still remain here - it was expected they would follow the cement tanks to Booths but it never quite happened!

    With regards to the visit - I assume that they weren't worth purchasing.

    I have PTS and work for a TOC so appreciate your comments regarding the boundary fence, hence I was curious. I would be surprised if the vehicles were good for anything other than scrap, a long time in the same place and in open storage with plenty of better ex Virgin/Wessex/Anglia examples about, what would be the point of buying them?
