    Another interesting recent find at Derby - I believe this is a Conflat L which could make it 041999 or 041515 (no sightings) or 041516 (last seen Derby 2005.) Again any more info appreciated.

    'VLU' would make it a match for Victoria Line Underground stock.

    Could it possibly be this at Worksop?

    I don't *think* so, although the two vehicles are very nearly identical, there's a couple of things that tell me they're not the same wagon. The axlebox covers (or that area) are yellow on this wagon, and might be a slightly different type, although it is hard to tell. Secondly, the extra square of bodywork (was it formerly a paper holder?) in the left-hand indent is in the centre of this wagon, on the wagon at Worksop, this square is right on the far left of the indent. There is also a small dent/horizontal scrape in the middle of the second panel on the wagon in this photo. This does not appear to be present on the Worksop wagon.
