    Is this the same brake van 55711 at Mangapps Farm, also listed as DS455?

    Service Stock of the Southern Railway p55 records S55719 as DS455 and S55711 as DS456. Cannot immediately verify this but assume to be correct.

    As a new member, I hope this info can help. According to the book Southern Wagons in Colour, two Dia.1581 vans entered departmental service in June 1947 for the SR weedkilling train. 55711 became 456s and 55719 became 455s. 55719, then as ADS455, entered preservation at the EKR on 29/9/93, having been withdrawn the previous day! It must've moved to Mangapps between the two sightings. Presumably 55711 (DS456) was scrapped at some point.
