    That numbering style should have been compulsory for all I.U. vehicles. How different life would have been.

    According to my notes, this is the former Tinsley Depot electrical fitters workshop, a GUV numbered E 93828.

    As per question under 041912 pic - does anyone know if this received a trademark Tinsley name?!

    I wasn't aware that said names extended to anything other than locos.

    Nothing other than Loco's got the famed painted names.

    according to the new book "life and times of a railway fitter at Tinsley Maintenance Depot" by Phil Hodgkiss this vehicle did indeed have a name -

    but is recorded as ex NKV 93838, the name being TAN-Y-ARSE applied 24-4-92.

    I remember seeing this van with the unofficial name Tan-Y-Arse applied in the usual Tinsley style sat inside the main depot building on a couple of occasions when I managed to get allowed in and have a look around, but never saw it outside the building.
