    Ben at Model Rail magazine is looking for more photos of 977337 for a new model - particularly the ends and details - so if anyone has any or can point me in the right direction (can't seem to search Fotopic as previously?)

    Alternatively if anyone knows of its current movements he may be able to get pics for himself so any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    It'll be on the RTC at Derby. It doesn't get out much these days as it's body is pretty much knackered (in all of the usual MK2 places), and it's usefulness was greatly reduced after the introduction of the DBSO's which left other mess vehicles free to be cascaded onto other trains.

    Does anyone know what happened to this vehicle?

    It's probably still at Wattisham, although interestingly there's only two coaches visible there in this view:

    I don't have Google Earth to check when that satellite photo was taken though.

    I'm not sure what the yellow tank is...?

    Could the tank be 999091, ex Toton?
