    I'm told any components have now been used from this set and the remains of all 6 sent to a scrap merchant in or near Preston. Thanks to DD

    Just needs a lick of paint :) Does the graffiti mean that the bogie is 'OK' ?

    Digging through some old photos, I found a few taken at Old Oak Common in February/April 2001. In the background there are several OHLM coaches.

    On this website there is only one observation of a single OHLM carriage at OOC- at the 2000 open day - 975693. Presumably more were obscured/hidden(?).

    Does anyone know the identities of the other vehicles please?

    At a guess, I'd say they were some of these: 975711, 975731, 975741, 975762 and 975766 but some were reported as being at Doncaster then (unless they were assumption sightings)?

    Thanks. Now amended. I think we did have it as 35100 originally but comment above suggested it was 34100.

    Vehicle 34100 is a disposal to Albert Loom Spondon 5/1968. 975486 should show as converted from vehicle 35100.

    I have just bought the Platform 5 book on coach disposals by Roger Harris and in here it states that it is 35100 that was converted in 1977 and not 34100 which was scrapped in 1968.

    There appears to have been some mix up with reports and websites regarding the location of this vehicle. Having seen the vehicle at the East Kent Railway, and comparing several photos of each vehicle, I am absolutely convinced that this vehicle is the one at the East Kent, and not 80785 as has been reported on various sites. 80785 is still at the Colne Valley, and this BG is at the East Kent. It was not at the East Kent in May 2017, but had arrived by May 2019. Other reports state the vehicle moved in September 2018. This coach also carried 81507 as a previous number.

    So I don't think this is still at Derby - as per comments under 024916 it looks like it is at Worksop with another unidentified yellow Conflat L. Seems likely this also came from Derby...?

    I don't think we've come to a conclusion here?!

    Moved to Great Central Railway in July according to VCT... although I see we have August and Sept 2020 sightings of it still at Churnet Valley...

    Sorry Ian I'm not sure as I don't have any books to hand to cross reference. Anyone else agree?

    This van was still complete in Berry's yard at the end of December 1990 but was body only by 10/3/91 and lingered for several months before being broken up later that year.
