    Sorry I should have mentioned, this view (and only a third of the wagon mind, before a Eurostar got in the way parked next to it) was gained from the Bishop's Stortford train..

    Well, a vehicle is still present... still blue in colour and in the same siding as seen on Google Earth.... but... today's weather was not something I wanted to be out in on an hour's walk from Leyton and back! So, it remains unconfirmed...

    Ahh yes.... I commented too! Lol great stuff, I'll have a wonder...

    There's a comment under 6353 suggesting they are in Palace Gates sidings. I don't know where this is exactly but suspect it's round the back so probably not visible from passing trains - best bet from local streets. I've not been there for years but think there is one road where there is a view of the rear...

    According to Steam Railway magazine Issue 507, it is this van which will be moving to the Middleton to be converted into a passenger carriage, similar to the line's other converted SR vans, and expected to take two years to complete.

    Ahh right ok Dan, so a clue to where 999666 could possibly be currently?

  • 785575

    I've found a note of seeing 785575 in Feb 1997. It was grounded at this time.

    Just found a note of seeing this in Oct 1996 so obviously not scrapped in 1995 as previously noted. Anyone got any more info please?

    Sorry for the confusion! 999666 is not, and has never been part of the 6-car set. It's always been part of the 3-car set with L132 and L133. The 6-car set is an entirely different entity.

    Interesting.... and is 999666 still part of the 6-car AIT and at Northfields too?

    Interesting photo here at Eastleigh works shows the old first class compartments still intact inside

    Although just doing some digging, it seems that the 6-car Asset Inspection Train has been decommissioned and is stored at Northfields. There's a photo from February of L132 from the 3-car set at Acton Works, but it doesn't say if it's arriving or departing, nor where to/from.

    Is it even still in use? This set was supposed to be replaced by the 67/72 stock set but not sure if it actually happened? Oh and another note, this was not 'new' as such, it was converted from 1973 stock 514. Also known as TRC666.
