It is now thought that the snowblower 968500 has now moved to Perth and these vans are perhaps surplus to requirements... Note the painted stripes on the roof - apparently to aid helicopter rescue teams locate the train in the snow!

Apparently these two vehicles have been sold to Strathspey Railway and are due to move there by rail as part of a move of a new bridge (Railway magazine Nov 2008.)

Does anyone know the first date this van was used? was it around in this style in 1989-1990?

these support vans were converted at Perth wagon depot , to go with the rail mounted snowblower based at inverness. Seem to recall 1884-85. I travelled with these a few times , the longest being to ashford in kent to clear snow from maidstone east line . We set off on evening from inverness and were coded class 1 train , priority all the way , unfortunatly towing the blower was restricted to 40 mph so it was the following evening before arribal. there wee bunks , kitchen and toilet in one van , diesel genset for power and full oil and spares in the other

I'm about to make a model of this item of stock and managed to get some good close up pics at the Strathspey During the week. I failed/ was unable to get around the other side to get some pics, Can any one tell me if the other side has a door matching the one on this side?
