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

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