    I recorded this wagon as a 10 Ton 5-Plank Open built by Hurst Nelson Ltd in 1934. It had an IU Plate on it. No idea what happened to it as it hasn't been reported in years.

    Interesting - thanks Brian. Anyone got any more info on this one please?

    A search of the VCT Database for 'Built by Hurst Nelson in 1934' only brings up 5-Plank open wagon M401732 so i wonder if it could be this wagon? M401732 was at Ruddington by 1996 but just described as an LMS 5-Plank open (I saw an unidentified LMS 5-Plank open there on 26/8/96). The LMS open was restored there c1997 and may have lost the IU plate & gained the number M401732 at this time. I had a look at M401732 a few days ago (now at Rowsley) and it has two holes on the frame where a plate was attached at one time although this could have been the wagon number plate.

    All conjecture though unless someone has the official identity. I've no idea if the M401732 number is a fictional identity when restored or the original number of the wagon.

    The official disposal of M401732 is condemned at Hackney Yard Newton Abbot period 26/1965 [12/1965] and sold for scrap from the same location period 12/1966 [2/1966]. Cut up by private contractor.

    Thanks John. M401732 looks like it is a fictional number applied to the wagon at Ruddington when restored there c1997. I wonder when 060737 was added to IU Stock?
