    Worth mentioning that although this has been described as being converted from a Milk Tank that is not strictly correct. It was actually a Milk Tank Trailer Truck. As such it never had a fixed milk tank. Instead it would carry a road trailer milk tank as required. When transferred into Departmental Coaching Stock two fixed fuel tanks were added. These tanks are still carried in the 2019 picture.

    Note on record says "tank removed", but has that ever been the case?

    This is still at Wishaw, in the very corner of a compound to the right of the entrance near the motorway.

    Hello John - you will have now seen the email and photos. The grab had Network Rail logos on it but Peter Hall seems to think it is unlikely to have been done by them?

    I'm told that scrapping of the three vehicles here finally started on Monday with bodywork removed by the end of that day. Expect most has now gone.

    There is an interesting picture on the OTPNET website at https://www.ontrackplant.com/photo/93100-2 which shows this body on the site of what is now Woking OTPD. At some point between 1987 and 1999 it was moved from the Downside to the Upside.

    I wrote it down as a 12T Conflat A wagon. It was lettered 'Bradford Valley' and 'Reach Wagon only' and was a Water Carrier with a Spray Coach. It was marked 'COND' when i saw it in 1981.

    Yep, reported as E70589E. When i saw it at York Works it was numbered E041436E. It was reported to be for sale in late 1982 and was presumably purchased by VSOE Carnforth for spares.
