    Anyone know if these coaches stored at Portobello have passed into ownership of Babcock Rail (ex First Engineering)? Thanks

    This set still here? No sightings for a year

  • 11 September 2018 - Ben Williams

    Still no sightings since 2016! Surely someone here must have passed them on ECML?

  • 11 September 2018 - Ben Williams

    I'm told they are visible on Google Streetview from June 2017!

    We're told these coaches are still there...

    I'm told that these were finally on the move last week. Two (not sure which two) are off to E G Steele & Co Ltd in Hamilton in connection with the restoration of a Pullman coach there. The rest are off to Carnforth. Unsure about fate of drum carrier. Thanks to SB and DD.

    Photo on a Facebook group show they have been shunted around today. Comments under suggest they're going to Leith yard for scrapping! However the photo does show two (told 975681 and 975688) having been separated out from the rest and top and tailed by two class 37s. So perhaps these two are off to Hamilton and the rest scrapped?

    975681 and 975688 were moved to Carnforth overnight on Dec 23rd by 37516/518. Rest still at Portobello.

    I'm told any components have now been used from this set and the remains of all 6 sent to a scrap merchant in or near Preston. Thanks to DD
