BCL road railers - Help!
Posted: 18 August 2015, 09:10
Can anybody help with a list of BCL road railers?
For example at North Wembley on 9th August 2001 were BCL Komatsu 130ES machined with running numbers 007, 015 and 017.
I tried search on OTP but no result. I have numerous sightings of BCL machines over the years but so many remain unidentified.
Thanks and all best wishes

It would be hard to identify them by the 2001 numbers as they were re numbered in later years due to a new asset register then re numbered again when they were bought by Quattro but if you spot a rexquote conversion 130 of Quattros it will be ex bcl

Are you sure the running numbers were 3-digit as BCL used 4-digit running numbers? I have 0007 = K30295, 0015 = K30106 and 0017 = K30441 but these are all PW170s.

Looking through OTPgen, it seems BCL were numbered in two/three digit form back in 2001. I imagine these were transferred into the four-digit format by adding zeros at the beginning.

This is what we have in our database at the moment. We seem to have a few gaps - if anyone can help fill them then please add to the list! Thanks.

Having looked back at my records, I have the following which sort out the duplications:
Former BCL 207 and now Quattro 455 was BCL 0006.
Former BCL 353 and now Quattro 471 was BCL 0051.
I don't think there were any other ex BCP machines acquired by BCL. Most of the 2x numbers were very early Rexquote converted Case 888P's which disappeared around 2003 from memory, part from ex BCP 26 which was acquired by MLP where it remains today.
