Steve, details (those I know) now added. This is an interesting machine as it was built in 1995 and has been used by L & W for many years as a civils machine. It has been owned since at least 2010 although may have been purchased much earlier. I know L & W had a D3 dozer as early as 2001 when one was delivered on a KWA wagon for emergency works after a collision between a 3-CIG unit and a tractor and subsequent derailment between Shoreham-by-Sea and Lancing but I can't confirm it is the same machine. It has spent a lot of time in recent years on the Bluebell, including being used on the East Grinstead extension.
I understand this has been to Rexquote for Road Rail conversion and has recently returned. Interestingly, this is the second RIV to be allocated to this machine, having originally been allocated 914077-5 in 2009 as one of several L & W machines which were allocated RIV's despite not being road/rail converted.
