    This appears to have had a close call. A post on Facebook today announced the purchase of this crane by the Llangollen Railway Trust from Sandbach Commercial Dismantlers, who bought it from the liquidators auction in May 2021.

    Have now put a proposal into a new home for 74108, with an aim to have her fully restored and working again for both work and demonstration. Fingers crossed I can get something sorted from this.

    I have SR 203 as a bogie 15t Jones Crane. I suspect strongly that the crane in the photograph is a Thomas Smith example.

    My understanding is that what was described as a 'crane' was moved by road from West Ruislip to Loram, Derby at about the time this sighting was made. This crane would I suggest be a prime suspect. If moved to Derby for overhaul or similar I would expect that it would be in the workshops and not visible from passing trains.

    Not sure if you've managed to look into this yet Vince, but I can confirm it still does the same thing today. I would also assume this is what has happened with the 2020 Cambridge sighting too.

    The sighting today of this, and a runner wagon, at South Mimms, will be the return of this crane from works at Northfields Tube Depot over the Christmas period. The crane, plus it's entourage, having been moved by road from York just prior to the Christmas shutdown due to a rail move being impossible/impractical.

    The Rail Trolley Trust, is urgently appealing for donations to the overhaul of this Trolley. Details will appear on the website shortly.

    The Trust is also looking for a spare set of foot pedals, so that driving facing either front or back, can be reinstated.

    For some reason, when I added a sighting of 9552 020 from that wagon's page, it's added a sighting for this machine? Not quite sure why!

    Many thanks for the guidance Andrew, unfortunately it would seem the area where it was situated has been cleared and there is a building site there now... Oh well, we'll see where it turns up next!

    It was clearly visible from the field in July, although I appreciate it may have been moved since, pending its sale and the closure of the works.

    All items in the auction had to be removed by 17th December, so it may not be there any more.

    Hi Greg. If it's still at Loughborough Brush, I doubt you'll see it from outside and I think you'll need to enter the site. Go in from Meadow Lane at the big "Brush" sign and turn left. You will come to a barrier where there's an intercom to speak to security. Hopefully they'll lift the barrier for you and you proceed a very short distance then turn right into a large area of car parks. The 'Mog is just on the other side of a fence. I went on a Saturday and passed the first security office at Meadow Lane where the gates were open with no one batting an eyelid. At the barrier, I said I wanted to see the locos (true as I needed 92021 at the time) but as they're gone, maybe you say you want to see the Brush Industrial locos too (if they're still there). Good luck!
