    This coach languished for a long time in the Down carriage sidings opposite Eastleigh station as 17076 in NSE livery and was a familiar sight to anyone passing through the station. It is now used by Alsthom as a training coach and can now be seen near the entrance to Eastleigh works.

    Has this vehicle moved on or was it scrapped on site when the works saw a clearout prior to closure. Lovely livery though and something akin to the old stagecoach colours temporarily applied to certain Mk.2 vehicles.

    As I understand it this coach is in the care of the people who restored the loco "Lord Nelson", however, this may have changed now that the loco is running on the mainline. Check with the ERPS(Eastleigh Railway Preservation Society) for confirmation.

    Coach has been brought by an individual and is awaiting removal.

    I've had a report suggesting this may have now been removed from here - anyone know any more please?

    Wasn't visible from Campbell Road bridge 14th March but may still be inside works. Extraction by road will be difficult?

    Can confirm this vehicle was back on the siding adjacent to the botley line on the 31/03/08. Hope this helps, though I fear the mystery only deepens further !!

    The vehicle is still on our site as at 5th April 2008. It was supposed to have been sold by Alstom but the money never changed hands, probably because its no small things to get old vehicles tripped out over the mainline. With Alstom's interest in the site being over the vehicle's future is unclear. Nobody's in any hurry to do anything with it. Make us an offer :-)
