Currently still at Fulstow so a current location rather than former location. However, as this is a private location not normally open to the public perhaps this should be shown as Private Site - Fulstow, near Louth and the link activated.
When I first noted it on 30/7/09, it was not R/R fitted, and it has been there on every later visit, and has never been fitted, but as it has been included in Shovlins fleet, I have just added Chris and my observations.
Re Rogers comments regarding having seen F19 & 20 on a low loader on the Motorway. The likelihood is that they went straight for export. F40 & 41 were in Kilmarnock one day I was there and have also been exported
Thanks for the reply, Tom. Given that I estimated there were 21 of these wagons at Radway Green at Christmas, and the ones that I was able to identify were ones previously at Carlisle, I would suggest that the TOPS report is incorrect and that they are all in fact at Radway Green. I can't prove this, and have only recorded the sightings for the ones that I positively identified, but I certainly don't think that it is safe to record them being at Carlisle based on the TOPS report.
Tom Dennett. Did you definitely see the number of this wagon today at Carlisle? Given that it was dumped in the dirt at Radway Green at Christmas (along with others that you have also recorded at Carlisle today), it is very interesting that it, and the others, have been taken back to Carlisle.
This new machine was noted at an almost empty Sandbach Land Recovery yard on 23/2/24. All the small plant - Mini 4-4s and trailers - had been removed. As the yard is very small, are they re-locating to Radway Green or a new yard elsewhere ?
Presumed scrapped in 2011, Bance 080 (TDM2NBAC08099) has been saved for preservation at the age of 25 years old. She appears to have done little, if any mileage. Unfortunately batteries are missing, but obsolete control gear appears to be in as-built cond
I would suggest that since c2008 this would probably be better categorised as preserved. Certainly no longer being used by Track Recovery Services and probably no longer owned by them. As far I'm aware Track Recovery Services are no longer active in railway infrastructure works.
Subsequent to the Brownhills auction this machine has been sighted several times at Basford Hall. This suggests it now has a new owner. Did anyone who has seen this machine since the auction note any owner/fleet number details?
Did anyone who has seen this machine recently got any details about its current owner? It is my understanding that it was sold from the TXM fleet sometime in 2023 and is now with a new owner. This owner presumably doing work at Basford Hall Yard.
Apparently it might now carry fleet number MCL009 rather than 5017 with it being suggested that MCL referes to MCL Rail. MCL Rail appear to have connections with Gascoigne Wood and other former colliery sidings in Yorkshire as well as battery shunting locomotives. They are not as fas as I can tell listed on ontrackplant.com as having road/railers.
There was a query on the website last year about the two Colmar T10000 machines stored side by side at EP Industries. I've identified the one on the right (viewing from the road) as this machine. The makers plate (works number 7437) was visible and read using a scope.
