    Ben,

    I went to the transport yard where this van body resided some years back. The chap I spoke to who had worked there for years said that it got taken away for scrap around 10 years ago (very rough guess).

    It had been used to house the transport washing tank and the floor had rotted beyond repair so they replaced it with a metal cladded container.

    Safe to say this can be marked as scrapped on the site

    Cheers, Martin

    This should be listed as an RFO rather than SO.

    It was later downgraded to 3rd class.

    Ended up as an internal user de-greasing coach based at Bounds Green.

    The GWRPG have decided to wind up and stock is being disposed of from the closed Southall Railway Centre. KDW80964 is reported moved to the Helston Railway in late April 2021.

    Sightings and photos here and elsewhere would suggest that the disposal date was a couple of months later than June 1996.

    My sighting of it at Peterborough Spital Sidings 7-4-91 was attached to DR76311.

    Are the sightings in 2014, 2015 & 2016 correct as I thought 96382 was scrapped during late 2007 please?

    This van is at Barrow Hill and is tucked away on a siding alongside the Deltic Preservation Society building. Plans are being made to extract it and restore it to something like its original working condition.

    This vehicle “stars” in the BTF film “they take the high road” where it was used as a dormitory coach at Killin station.

    Seen at Doncaster TMD in Feb 1982 but i can't remember if the van was complete at this time. It did carry incorrect IU number 041262. As with 041539, it could have been moved to Hexthorpe for use as a grounded body later in the 1980s when the OHLM Depot opened on site.

    I recorded it at Doncaster TMD in Feb 1982. Can't remember if it was a complete van back then but it carried incorrect IU number 041269. Doncaster Hexthorpe yard was mainly used for storing condemned coaching stock back in 1982 so the van bodies could have been placed there when the OHLM Depot opened later in the 1980s.

    Thanks Kevin. Your 1980 sightings suggest the 1979 disposal is wrong!
