    This machine was cut up on the exact same siding that the PBI 84 Stone Blower was sat for some time. Just a bit of fun here, but this is a true story. A certain EX member of staff rode a kids pushbike along the PBI roof (as a bet/prank) but as he did the Workshop manager walked past, saw him, shrugged, turned around and walked away! And I know that certain member of staff will see this message :-)

    NWR told plant companies several years ago of future plant requirements , a big reduction of plant was on cards . Since these were older machines what was other option ??? . Lots of nationalised industries were sold off at less than value of plant / vehicles , you dont see Freightliner or BRS etc using 30 - 40 year old lorries , . Times move on , technology proceeds at a rate of knots , , spares supply for obsolete stock is non existent , NWR want ALC , PALLAS , etc , No time for these mcs was up , value of scrap has risen once more , I could go on .....

    WHat about Carillions newer 07s ? burnt up Not a travesty commercial sense you certainly could not sell these on & why continue to throw money at them for stat tests ( VIBT Air Receivers UAT ) etc .. Get shot of them ,their work is done ......... Move on
