    Does anyone know the number of the Seacow ballast wagon to the right of 041985? (or the other grey Seacow at the ELR?)

    Hi Phil,

    From the original photo the number of the wagon on the right is DB 982390 (whale). I also have DB 982540 as being listed as on ssite.

    Brgds Brian.

    Its DB982540, DB 982390 is located further along the line of wagons.

    I have photos taken today of them all.

    They must have shunted the wagons around then because the one in the above photo is definately 982390 as i can read it it on the builders plate :-)

    I will try to get the photos added onto the site, but I don't think they have moved. 982390 is in faded dutch livery by the looks of it, and they can be seen from the park/picnic area, just across the road from Ramsbottom station.

    The wagons were DB982390, DB915390??, 041985, DB982540.

    And they were in that order during the Thomas weekend at least.

    The location of the photo above is south of Buckley Wells Shed near the Metrolink line if that helps.

    That more than likely explains that then. They have moved.... Halfway down the line. They have been there for a couple of months now.
