This unit is to see a repaint into this livery over the next month or so...
" As of today the above vehicle has entered the Middleton Railway Moor Road paintshop for a repaint in BR Research red & blue livery, which will match the Wickham railbus at the same site very nicely. Quite possibly the only pair of RTC blue/red vehicles in preservation - unless of course you know differently...
The black ends with half yellow panels (see http://www.old-dalby.com/HSCCP.htm) will be particularly attractive and if anyone is interested in chartering the pair in a month or so please contact ian.dobson9015ATbtinternet.com "
thanks to Ian for the news

I wonder what the cost would be to charter the pair - say back end of August ;)

I would like to know the history of the RTC coloured red/blue van in tow in this photo? I assume it was a tool/stores van but what was its number?

The Red and Blue wagon looks very much like...
HSFV4, (High Speed Freight Vehicle)
Wagon type ZXX
and was used as a "Vehical/Track Interaction Stores Vehicle"

Agreed, see http://www.departmentals.com/photo/787319. Seeing as this (the wagon) is now preserved the above setup could be partly recreated...
