I remember working on these shifts back in the day. If I recall correctly a lot of this remodelling at Brum International was through the platform and we used the crane in swivel, hence having to hire big outrigger mats from Ainscough for the propped side. Happy days back then with Grants and the original Kirow boys.
Should this not be taken from the decommissioned/scrapped section and reverted back to the TXM listing. I have seen this on my last 2 visits to the Ashton-in-Makerfield depot; the last time being 25.05.18
I checked the Windhoff builders plates on both 98006 and 98013 yesterday, and 98006's plate reads ' Serial No. 160843 'and date 2000, whilst 98013 has 160840 and 2000 date. The site has their builders numbers as 2519 and 2512 respectively, so if those are the correct builders numbers, what are the 1608xx numbers ? 98013 carries nameplate " DAVID WOOD 1951 - 2015 ".
