    This was the last of the Internal fleet at Ditton. We got there just a little late to see this cut in half and awaiting disposal, the rest had already gone 4-3-90. Real shame, there were a few unfitted minerals there!!

    Excluding the door droplights, both sides have 7, but one side has 7 full size windows, the other has 7 full size windows and the former toilet window.

    This photo appears to be Ipswich, rather than Stafford.

    How many windows does this have on either side? I've seen photos that show 8 on one side and 7 on the other.

    This was the pmv that was used to bring the body of the unknown soldier from Dover to london and two other heroes of ww1, this was the only reason why it survives now

    Richard, Do you have any contact details for anyone connected to the coach?

    Quorn Wagon and Wagon have a sister coach to 977109, 977107. We are currently going working on the coach and are leaving it in its converted condition, but are aware that for some items we have few spares mainly on the electrical/battery charging system.

    I think the two sightings at Bolsover are incorrect. They must refer to the second issue of the IU number and thus relate to B336966.

    Not a real departmental loco of course - this is Chinnor's 31163 in disguise as 97205 which was a number never allocated in BR days. There was a 97204 which looked like this though (ex 31326 / 31970.)

    Recently been over hauled by myself and other carriage and wagon staff at the Great Central Railway - Rothley C&W, the vehicle is now in a BR Maroon livery.

    We have a page for Rothley Carriage & Wagon on Facebook if you would like more frequent updates.

    It's the same place - the museum site is in Westwood Industrial Estate. Photos would suggest this was on display at the site by at least August 2019.

    Also moved to Margate - VCT suggests it moved to Westwood industrial estate in 2019 but may now be at the new museum site.

    Was overhauled along with SECR C-class No.592 in 1994, and has been running behind it since.

    This photo is by Martin Allen, and was taken shortly after its arrival at the Bluebell Railway..

    The Maunsell Locomotive Society had obtained a second S15-class locomotive from Barry Scrapyard, No.30830, without a tender, and so this former Schools-class tender, converted to a snowplough, ADS70227, was obtained for this locomotive in 1996, and the concrete-filled body removed soon after. When the opportunity arose for the Maunsell Loco Society to purchase Schools Class loco ‘Stowe’ it was felt that this would give the society a much better balanced collection, and to help raise funds for the purchase, 30830 was sold, together with spares obtained and the tender chassis, and moved to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway on 28 or 29 September 2000.
