I hope this link to ltsv.com works. They have it listed as MPV 98907 98957

Could be any of the twin MPV sets - these tend to run as a generic 3Zxx or 6zxx code that isn't fixed to any particular machine. The pattern seems to be that a number lower than 50 is used for weedkilling jobs, higher than 50 for RHTT work, but not in every case. 3Z12 seems to be a very common code for weedkilling jobs in various areas.

Unfortunately MPV 98906 98956 worked into Tees Yard as 3Z12 last week which throws a spanner at 98907 98957

As Dan above mentioned. MPVs don't have fixed headcodes and tend to use generic ones of the 3Z / 6Z variety.

3z12 that Ray original enquired about, that particular day was 98907 98957
