Kingsland Road today

Hi, there were two Colas tampers in Bristol Kingsland Road sidings earlier today but as I was on a train on the Parkway line I was unable to identify them. Can anyone help please?

On 18th April 2017 there were three machines - DR 73805, DR 73931 and DR 73911 - if things haven't changed its likely you saw the first two listed parked together
Hope that helps

Unfortunately I can't help with these​, my train up was too packed. My return will be in darkness.
Thanks for your sightings reports though.
Of possible interest to others will be a couple of drain cleaners near Gloucester. It's the access point about half a mile from the triangle in the Bristol direction, right hand side of the line as you head towards Bristol.
I think they are Complete Drain Clearance vehicles, an unimog and a lorry. The nozzle seemed to go over the cab of the lorry, ruling out the fuso of another company.
Also noted were 4 TXM machines and 3 trailers at Charfield, plus 2 superrailers and 2 trailers in the middle of nowhere!!
There was 0 at BTM, Filton Abbey Wood, Ram hill, Yate, Berkeley jcn and Cam and Dursley.
