    Yet another useful rail vehicle going to waste - I wonder if they would be prepared to sell it?!

    I used to work in this yard. No company would own up to owning it.I was told it contained asbestos.

    Paul's comment sounds familiar - That's the response you usually get when trying to find who owns something most people consider as scrap: "It's not ours, try asking X"!

    I understand that this vehicle was set on fire by the locals back in early summer 2004 and badly damaged - a fate that befell 975797 (also at Heaton ECD) sometime ago. Both vehicles were scrapped onsite as they were then considered to be dangerous and understandably an eyesore
