    This tank has been tucked away at the back of Willesden TMD for years now - it is visible from passing trains on the Bakerloo line / Watford local service and from the Willesden Jcn high level station (in the background of this picture) It isn't visible from the WCML lines though.

    Still present yesterday - thought it may have got the chop as part of the recent depot upgrade but it has escaped so far!

    It seems to be constantly in the way at the moment while coaching stock and RRVs use the sidings but yet still it resists a move!

    If you mean the sightings then yes I would agree - please add sightings using the link at the top not as photo comments please!

    The stored coaching stock that partially obscured the view of this vehicle has now been removed from the TMD. Its possible to photograph it from passing trains on the DC lines, although the pallisade fencing does obstruct the view a little.

    We await any developments with this tank, and the iu flat nearby.

    They are now on short lengths of track and all other track in that area has been lifted, pending fresh track being installed.

    The relaid lines are to become a stabling area for LOROL DMUs.

    This all relates to ongoing work involving depot enhancements to cope with the lengthened 378s.

    This tank and the iu flat at Willesden depot are no longer visible from the station end of the site.

    The flat had moved to the enhancement-work compound, and the tank had recently had a scaffolding structure and platform surrounding it. Presumed to gain access and do any necessary purging prior to disposal.

    They had not been part of the original contract for the clearance of the sidings, where work now proceeds apace.

    When I passed Willesden TMD earlier today, both this Tank wagon, and the siding it was parked on have gone!

  • 3 September 2014 - Peter Anthony Cummings

    The sidings will return (the tank won't).

    They are being relaid for stabling the Goblin DMUs whilst work happens on the depot proper.

    The headshunt under the bridges is being lengthened, and that's the other main sign of ongoing work.

    Tank wagon donated to East Anglian Railway Museum by London Overground (TfL) tank separated from chassis and moved in two parts due to height restrictions on road leading from depot
