If you missed it in the comments a few days ago, here is a video from a passing train of the new wagons in the yard. You can see the new UMH wagons at either end of the first rake of (old) MFS wagons.

On-Track Machine Preservation

In the last couple of round-ups, we mentioned that the two Plasser RM74 ballast cleaners were scrapped. This has changed slightly - a cab from of each machine has now been preserved at "The Cab Yard" in South Wales, where they join several other cabs from various locomotives and powered units.

Matisa Neptune trolley DX50002 also joined the cabs, from Locomotion Shildon. The trolley is complete and will be returned to full working order when time allows.

    I may have seen one of the new TXM Colmars at the Langley depot this morning but not 100% certain.
