    This was allocated IU number 041978 and spent a lot of time at Immingham yard where it was observed during 1997.

    Wonderful. Always was curious about the innards of these things.

    Shot to come of this blowing off at Kings Cross, 20+years ago - as soon as I master the new scanner.

    I would suggest the barrel is not as converted, DE321073 doesn't have anything like this inside ! It has 2 Spanner vertical boilers in the centre, with waist-high, full-width tanks each end, 1 for water and one for fuel, I believe and a small Lister generator by one tank. A similar-looking boiler can be seen in Loughborough yard between the platforms and shed (as of 7th August)

    Any progress with the KX pic Peter ?

    Apparently this has now been scrapped...

    Spent a few years at immingham Wagon Repair Depot out of use, but I don't recall it ever recieving an IU number even if it was allocated.

    Initially sold c1998 to Central Railway Engineering. Remained at Immingham until re-sold to Mangapps Farm Museum.

    The 2004 picture shows that this had had all internals and bodywork except for ends removed.

    I wonder if Ben's 2008 comment refers to the end panels being removed.

    An as yet unsubstantiated reference I have suggests it was reduced to a wheeled chassis which is either still at Mangapps or went elsewhere and now carries a vintage carriage body. Any one able to add anymore?
