    Hi Lee

    Yes, correct. From a post dated March 2021, this apparently departed in late 2020 “for pastures new due to reaching a point in its life whereby it was beyond economic repair”. Whether that’s a polite reference to being sent for scrap, or whether it appears elsewhere remains to be seen.

    The Genie is one of the old Z45/22s. It’s still in its original blue (or was on delivery in March) which makes me think it’s one of PTL125 or 126. The former may be most likely, despite no sightings since 2018, as the latter would have required rebuilding given its state in the 2019 photo.

    I have a feeling that this might have been disposed of by the tramway and replaced with an ex Pod-Trak Genie the identity of which I am currently unaware of

    Is there any reason why Wickham Trailer 11718 is not included on the site for observations ?

    Rail Bug used to be carried by HYDREX versions back in the 2000's with Monster Bug on the ones coupled together and under one operator.

    Noted freshly refurbished at GOS yesterday, notably this has gained "Rail Bug" branding. As far as I am aware, this has previously only been carried by Kobelco/New Holland 135 model machines.

    It is recorded by the IRS that 9020 was sold from MoD service at Bicester in 1977 for preservation in Sleaford, Lincolnshire. My understanding, following subsequent conversations, is that the purchaser was a private individual with a Sleaford address. Thus, it became the personal possesion of a person rather than an asset of a preservation organisation.

    What then became of 9020 is a complete mystery. It is possible that in the subsequent 44 years that it has been scrapped. It is also possible that it is with the same person or a member of their family and has become a family heirloom, kept in private premises rarely seeing the light of day. Thus, possible that one day it might emerge as a "barn find" or similar.

    Hi Greg, you're wrong. This is at site of the Godfrey Road sidings, now a station car park / AP.

    As far as I'm concerned this is not Godfrey Road, this is Newport Ebbw Network Rail depot and sitings should be noted accordingly.. I went past here the other week August 30th and saw a Quattro machine new like this just after the bridge in the same spot. Godfrey Road is the old loco SP adjacent to the railway station, no where near the NR depot...

    Can anyone confirm through eyeball observation / photograph whether the same or different numbers are currently carried on either side of this machine and what those numbers are?

    When I saw this machine yesterday I checked both sides. In doing so I was able to confirm that although the correct 99 70 9559 002-9 number is carried on one side it is still incorrectly numbered 99 70 9559 002-2 on the other side.

    RR112 carries 914101-9 stickers on both sides on the outside of the vehicle, but carries both 914101-9 and 914102-7 stickers in the cab.

    RR111 carries 914102-7 stickers on both sides altered to 914101-9 on the outside of the vehicle, but 914102-7 on yellow and white stickers in the cab.

    Of interest is that FR1364 had had the 4 applied over a scratched out 5, and 912082-3 panels applied over the 912085-6 panels, but carried the correct 90A18T on the boom. The real 912085-6 was also on site at Kingston.
