    This vehicle is at Havenstreet, Isle of Wight behind the C&W workshop. It still carries the incorrect number S1350.

    This is currently in the Isle of Wight Steam Railway's off site undercover store. Sightings are unlikely for the moment.

    Received a photo of this being moved across from the works last Friday for onward road movement back to KESR. Now in chocolate and cream livery. It arrived at Eastleigh exactly two years ago on Aug 1st 2019.

    This would appear to be one of the former bullion van conversions, l wonder what its future will be

    Thanks Les - now updated.

    This is definitely CC99014 (ex-SR Scenery Van S4600), the rainstrips are very low down, the rainstrips on 99015 were very much higher up.

    The vehicle on the left, Mk.1 BCK (originally 21275), is CC99016 and is supposed to be the last BCK ever built. A passenger door, originally immediately to the left of the Guard's (inward opening) door has been removed and plated over, notice the long rainstrip which originally covered both doors.

    975350 just visible to the left. Think they were often paired together at this time as the Frodingham BTU set.

    Just wondered if anyone knew the ID of the carriage it was hooked to?

    Thanks Ross. Was not one of the ones I was able to identify from the fence line - I did say 'not sure if this has now been scrapped'! Just happened to spot the panel with the number on it. Too much going on in the yard there this weekend for my liking, so didn't hang around too long.

    Worry not, your initial assumption of scrapped is very much wrong. (A big leap as well may I say, the vehicle was sat only further down the yard in the van train!)

    B852838 is still preserved in the van train. We (Quorn Wagon and Wagon) have recently re-panelled some rotten side sheets, replacing them with newly painted plywood.

    Confirmes as still being alive, this photo clearly shows where the replacement panels have been fitted:

    Not sure if this has now been scrapped (or at least the body), or simply re-panelled and refurbished, but substantial pieces of wood, one clearly the whole left-hand panel of 852838 were in a pile in the yard at Quorn today awaiting burning.

    Well spotted Ben - thought i'd deleted that one!

    I've been made aware that it seems this number was also allocated to GWR railmotor coach 93

    https://www.didcotrailwaycentre.org.uk/zrailmotor93/railmotor93/railmotor93.html

    Is this a one off duplicate of 079xxx series? I suspect not?!
