    Has lost the guards side observation lookout windows on both sides, these being removed(pushed in) to allow shunt loco crew better visibility ahead.

    Currently in use with 08 619 (plain red livery) transferring stock between works and centre sidings adjacent to WCML.

    used to allow buffer fitted shunt loco to couple to tightlock fitted Electric units as the transfer siding is not electrified.

    This is what remains of this wagon which used to be a brake van (see other photo link above.)

    Confirmation that this former brake van is still in existence, and in use at Wolverton Works... a photograph I have taken should seen be approved for the site.There is also an unidentifiable match wagon type vehicle, which I have also photographed..

    Interesting - thanks Greg. I will update soon. Other pic is 082213.

    This photo reminds me - there's a recent photo of loco 01544 on Trainlogger taken last month at Worksop. It appears to have a yellow translator / match wagon with it. I wonder if this has been relocated from elsewhere. I'm not sure what units are being stored there?

    The match wagon at Worksop is 041281. There's also a yellow Conflat L there too, but I haven't been able to work out which one it is. Both were at Worksop at least as far back as December last year, which would suggest the September sighting for 041281 is erroneous.

    In fact, after just looking at the photo, the one with 01544 in that photo is the unknown Conflat L.

    Thanks Dan. Could it be a repainted 041998 perhaps? Maybe this got a coat of yellow at same time as 041281...?

    Comments under yellow 041281 pic suggest that was still at Derby earlier this year! Confused!

    No way 041998... still dumped wheelless on a wagon at Bombardier.I sent you the pic of it earlier this year Ben, no chance that will ever return..

    I'm sure it's 041281 at Worksop, identified by those trademark holes in the body! Most recent photo I can find that shows 041281 still on site is 10th August. I wonder if the second wagon could be the non-reported 041999? There's not a lot of clues, apart from it is yellow, and has a red bufferbeam, which must pre-date the yellow as it's quite faded.

    The yellow Conflat at HNRC Worksop has letters 'SSL' roughly written on it. No idea what that means. My photo of it is on the UK Locos website listed under 'Worksop'. It's been in the same place at the Western end of the depot yard on the three occasions i've had a look. I haven't seen another Conflat here although the yard is full of new units so not all stock is visible.
