    This coach currently has no numbers on this side (and hasn't done for a long time!)

    Interesting it has also gained a TOX grafitti tag - more familiar to London Tube stock a few years back but seems to be less apparent these days (I think it was widely copied and the original TOX guy got a slapped wrist and a few hours community service for many thousands of pounds worth of damage...)

    The Toe-rag also probably got a free holiday somswhere hot , because no doubt

    sombody said it was not his fault , he caused the damage etc , It was his ''upbringing ''

    No, TOX got 5 years, London Underground & British Transport Police pressed for the maximum sentance and TOX got it!

    VCT states: For spares only - will then be scrapped (reportedly in Derby!).

  • 28 June 2016 - Ben Williams

    I don't think this has ever been at Derby!

  • 28 June 2016 - Simon Jones

    I think that the comment means that it will go to Derby for scrapping once spares have been recovered.

    According to Roger Harris this coach has been refurbished, at the East Somerset Railway Cranmore, as a catering vehicle in 2018 and regained its 35487 number.
