    I would say this is more like DE320946. It is a later end vestibule TK, no compartment doors, it still has a gangway at least on one end. DE320946 has one gangway as it was part of the North Eastern region weed killing train.

    6360 and 6361 both now missing for a while. Possibly despatched for scrap to Watsons near Stafford but confirmation needed.

    I was subsequently told:

    "061207 and 975485 were the stores vans for 31210 and 31235 so there's a good chance they have followed the locos to Ruddington."

    Any confirmation appreciated

    An ELR contact recently told us

    "There are 2 ex BSK's converted to breakdown train 'tool/recovery vans' that are on the ELR. These are ADB 975489 which is CFPS owned and currently on road 6 at Baron Street, and ADB 975492 which is ELR owned (ex Birmingham railcar Group) and is currently sat outside the C&W depot. ADB 975493 (which for a short period was at the ELR) apparently used to also belong to Birmingham Railcar Group but was sold by them in 2020 to (they think) a location in Scotland."

    Roger you uploaded a photo of this but I believe the wagon at Wishaw used as "Toby" has a Ruston shunter RH235513 under the cladding

    I was told exactly the same as Peter Hall during the Branch Line Society tour at Helston today. Apparently, some stock movement has now finally taken place at Southall, so this van and one other still trapped there should finally be reachable. April could well be the month they are collected.

    S2400S converted to IU 082949 02/01/1971. S2405S went to Bird Group Bynea 04/03/1966.

    I think it carried S 2400 S

    The other photo of it at Tanfield has been labelled as such

    The number on the red van looks like S2405 to me.

    13 March 2024 - Stephen Kinsey

    Searching the web for the BR Weedkilling Train revealed the following information from the RCTS.

    By 1983 the BR/NER/ER Weedkilling Train was formed of Staff and Dormitory Coach DB975379, Stores Vans DB977015 & DB977016, Spray Coach DE320995 (converted from Gresley Open Brake Third BTO 16551 and five tank wagons.

    The two Stores Vans had replaced former BR Fish Vans DB975387 & DB975388 in c1981. In c1984 DE320995 was replaced with a new Spray Coach DB977229. The train was allocated CEPS number 88001 and taken out of use in 1988.

    My notes show I noted 88001, it must have been on 977229 as I didn't record that number.

    What's confusing is the UK & Ireland Heritage Railways Carriage Survey has 88001 as a later number for DE320995, (now preserved at Colne Valley Railway).
