Hi all,

Would anyone happen to know the ID of the Skyrailer at Bombardier in Derby (Litchurch lane) please.

Cheers,

Steve.

I'm trying to find out the ID myself mate, it's an ECS (Electrification Construction Services) vehicle... unfortunately, there is no fleet number and the NR number is around the other side!

Just been back round there on my lunch break and it's nowhere to be seen.

Yes I didn't see it on my way to work either today.. It is 912468 or 912473, and I'm suspecting 468 as the photo of 473 shows that vehicle has blue wheel rims.

The vehicle seen at Bombardier has black wheel rims.Shame there is no photo of 468 to confirm the look of it..

You could be right, 473 has a black box on it can't say I noticed any box on the one I saw this morning but it was 4.30am.

I have found some photos of 912468, but I'm still not convinced.. I've looked at said platform lift through binos a few times in the daylight and could swear the wheel rims aren't blue but black... unless they've been repainted since...?

I Think this will have to be the one that got away.

The blue wheel rim denotes that vehicle is fitted with solid rubber tyres as opposed to pneumatic.

Most new RR's are fitted thus...as are 912468 & 912473.

The Blue RIM is to signify that the tyre has been filled with Foam and so will Not Deflate as I was told.

Was also told that this was around £400 per tyre.

This has been around for at least 3 years now.
