    It's recently been emptied of the E&P spares etc, and is believed to be up for disposal soon.

    Does anyone know about the folded down platform between the coach roofs? My question is, as there are 6 coaches in the rake there are only 5 gaps. Has one coach got no cross plate or do 2 plates face one another between one set of coaches.

    Cheers Tony.

    I believe this and the rest of the train has now left Preston by rail. Anyone know where for?

    Brian passed earlier this morning and says at least 3 coaches are still there but it was dark at the time.

    He spoke to the signaller whose box overlooks the sidings and he said that they are all going for scrap but will be leaving by road. He didn't think any had left yet though...

    No, they aren't going for scrap yet - they haven't even been sold. They could be moved by rail, but are 'red-carded' at the mo, due to the maintenance contract with Marcroft ending.

    They shouldn't have even been shunted out into the station the other month (think there was a photo in the Railway Magazine).

    They'd better not be! The main reason that NR are getting rid is that they make the place look untidy - that and the fact that they haven't been used for about 5 years since the MPV's / SRS lorries came on-stream.
