Hi Vince,

Senior moment i think but it was hammering it down at the time, the TW270 is i suspect part of the weight information had a better look round it and there are no ID numbers anywhere.

I,ve uploaded a photo but i doubt it,s of any use.

We think most likely 040010 Stephen... apparently the serial number should be stamped on a plate near one of the corners of the frame but quite difficult to see.

Could it be 040011 which was buried in the undergrowth?

I ruled that out as it seems to have a clear fleet number 61 on it, and a number 56? spray painted on the top? Admittedly that picture was taken in 2014 but unlikely it has had a repaint!
