Trac's branded cupcakes!

It was good to meet and chat with many of the exhibitors and also put faces to familiar names!

The website seems to be well-known within the industry and we are glad that it is proving useful.

I'd like to thank everyone concerned and look forward to your continued support. Also to Network Rail for allowing me to visit and a special thanks to the people at Trac for their warm welcome and excellent Trac-branded cupcakes!

    Ben, regarding Keltbray Aspire GN51 MBF DAF Access lorry. I noted it with UIC number 99709 919052-9 whereas the list on gives it as 919054-5. Can you please check your notes and correct if necessary

    Gents, can confirm that the vehicle carries 919052-9 as it has been re-engineered and re-registered from it's former wcml use., the current access platform being particularly suitable for working under 'headspan' type electrification. A number of similar ex wcml vehicles also being re registered so it's not a case of one number for life .
