    I believe ZRF is the wrong TOPS code for this wagon, it does not have the A.F.I brake system fitted. It has the standard Empty/Loaded VB system fitted.

    VCT says this was scrapped in 2012 so subsequent sightings might need double checking!

    Doesn't seem like the location is the old RTC to me... looks like that's on a mainline somewhere hmm...

    Did post a comment a week or so ago about this containing links, but it never appeared. Lost in cyber space or dodgy links perhaps. Thus, trying again without links.

    Anyhow, a couple of weeks ago I made a brief visit to Railway Retreats, Northiam. Note that this is adjacent to the Kent & East Sussex Railway station but not a part of the railway so probably best considered as a seperate location.

    My records record two items of former departmental coaching stock at this location, 083572 which was present and 024534 which wasn't. I hadn't expected 024534 to be present as it has been reported elsewhere that it is away being converted to additional holiday accommodation for the site.

    In addition I expected to find SR PMV 1218 at the location in use at the adjacent premises of 'The Carriage' hairdressers. I was surprised to actually find three SR PMV's on site. One in use at 'The Carriage' and two in use as holiday accommodation. One of the latter now carries the number 2196 which if correct means it is the former DS93 but I couldn't confirm that. One of the other two is presumably 1218 but as to the identity of the third I have no idea, perhaps this is another ex departmental.

    Anyone know if this still survives please? VCT says "By 06/13 advertised as for disposal or failing that for scrapping. "Asbestos plan will be required"." No sightings on here since 2016.

    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.
