    My sources tell me that NRM is interested in preserving HSFV1 and it will be exhibited alongside APT-E

    Yes, its still there in the Serco yard.

    The APT-E support group is in the process of trying to preserve it..........

    The underframe of the DC460000 is similar to the one on the HSFV1 ?

    I hope it does get preserved, i'd also like to see one of Lab 1's bogies saved along the same lines, or alternatively perhaps "Lab 1" would be an ideal support coach for the APT lads.

    Serco have donated HSFV1 to the APT-E Conservation & Support Group.

    All we need to do now is find it a good home.

    Lab 1 is still at the RTC and we have been told it is being scrapped ASAP, it still has its LC1 bogies, the last APT bogies.

    Somoeone was at the RTC today looking at HSFV1. It'd be nice if it went to Shildon to be part of the APT story. The NRM spends enough money on other projects (like a certain green water boiler), this wagon and the APT deserve to have there story told at properly. Glad to hear the wagon has been saved. Good luck for the future.

    Paul - I can probably arrange on track storage space for you but it would be outside at present.

    A road vehicle arrived at RTC yesterday to collect HSFV1, but it didn't go without a fight as it had a minor derailment.

    Sorry David,

    I didnt read your post about an offer of on track storage.

    Yes, HSFV1 is at Shildon now, and is part of the National Collection at long last. Something I've been pressing for for YEARS!
