    No its not. The number 977695 was allocated to Hastings trailer 60525 but the conversion was cancelled and the vehicle scrapped at Margam Gwent Demolition (arrived 2/92.)

    The current 977695 at Eastleigh pictured here is converted from newspaper van 86438 / 94001. It does seem however that this van was used at times inside a former Hastings unit.

    Now in the cutting area at Booths it doesn't look as though this will survive another week.....
