Hi

I wonder if anyone may be able to help with a couple of queries I have from 11th August.

Cwmbran Fitzgeralds.

At the back of the storage compound there are 4 mini 4-4s on top of a container. I was unable to identify any of them, however the 4 most recently reported ones are;

M44/080, 136, 140 & 144. Can anyone confirm which ones are on top of the container please? (There was also what looked like a 009xxx trailer on top of 011611 which was also up there).

There were a number of TRS platform lifts either side of the Cardiff end of the yard. On the side opposite the sidings there were two Network Rail lorries. Unsure what they were, but one seemed to have a massive number 3 on it, and I think the other a massive number 4. Is anyone able to help identify these please?

Regards

Chris

I saw them last weekend but can't confirm numbers I'm afraid. I think the one at the back with cut down frame is almost certainly 901198. Think they are also gradually being refurbished down the road so possibly swapping around...

Thanks for the reply Ben.

Next time I go I will have to bring a periscope! Hopefully it will be much less than 1 year before I go again.

Kind regards

Two of them were 901164&98. The MEWP numbered 3 is most likely 917035. Ex Newcastle where they received Fleet Numbers, but don't know what 4 is/was.

Thanks Roy, that's most helpful.

Certainly something to keep an eye out for when I'm out and about again.

Kind regards

There were two T12 trailers up there - suspect they are 009102 and 009106 which have been reported there last month.

I saw 009106 which was stacked amongst some 0116xx trailers, so 009102 looks very likely for that.

Thanks for the help Ben.

Oh yes good point - I did note that one too...
