It was confirmed today that Quattro have bought some of the assets from RRC. All those noted at Quattro Cwmbran today have been acquired, and it is thought another two MEWPs are in the deal but not confirmed.
We were told yesterday that TRAC have bought the large building next door to their yard at Chesterfield, and much of their fleet will probably be moved there in the short term. It also has a large yard.
The WTC 01 / 02 plates on the two vehicles at Walsall NR Training Centre are carried front and rear where the road registration plates used to be, so are presumably to be kept off road for training purposes.
So I think we established this photo was taken at a secure storage location not far from Sutton Courtenay. The old Amey depot is now completely flattened - drove past there earlier today. Explains the fastclippers appearing at Membury and this one being relocated.
There are/were some LWRT wagons in a siding (and off track) adjacent to the Freightliner area of York Yard.
York Klondyke yard is undergoing re-modelling, whilst Holgate works is cut off* (maybe one accessible line) from the rail network whilst the recently re-acquired '5 Acres' site is developed as part of the Holgate Works site. The North End traverser has been removed (so no access to some of the site), the South End traverser is in situ and looks to have seen recent refurbishment. Only the CD501 and one wagon were visible from all vantage points on 30/12/2018. Klondyke yard had a stock of De-icing wagons and engineering box wagons. The old wagons formerly located there have gone, at least some of which have been documented as scrapped.
The most recent picture I have seen of this machine shows it carrying 99709912190-5, as was the case in 2016, which of course is the wrong check digit. Can anyone who has seen it subsequently say whether or not the correct number is now carried?
The most recent picture I have seen of this machine was taken in November 2017 when it was still carrying the incorrect number 99709 910040-0. Can any one who has seen it subsequently say whether this has been corrected?
Looking at my pics, I know 93347 and 93357 are two of the Clayton vehicles. These were completed by August 2017. There was 5 in a rake, but they were hauled away before I could ID any more. I can provide a link to my pic of 93357 - but it's not brilliantly visible due to the sheer amount of fencing.
