F794MCH etc.


I visited Tyne&Wear metro depot at South Gosforth in 16th March 1999 and noted this road rail Permaquip vehicle in the car park reg F794MCH.

However it does not appear on the OTP website. Also present was a 4w tracgopher also unidentified and a Zweiweg railogrinder as well as a yello Tamper Unomatic 08/16M.

Any info appreciated

Kind regardsTed Knotwell

Ted, The Permaquip RRV has beaten me and the Zweiweg. The 08/16M Tamper is on OTP - Nexus 2437. The Tracgopher - Works #4791535 now with Stobart their W147.


Thanks very much Mr Roy Union Pacific!


I have now found reference to F794MCH. In IRS handbook 12EL of 1999.

It is listed as F171DUA 4wDM R/R Perm /1992 and the location is South Gosforth car sheds.


Interesing , we have F171DUA as a unimog...

Now I am totally confused.


Sorry my mistake!

F794MCH is listed as 4wDM R/R perm /1992

F171DUA is Unimog 140729/1988.


Interesting - we should probably add a record for the Multicar. Anyone got a photo please? I suspect I know someone who may do...
