    A couple of other websites suggest that this moved to the Vale Of Berkeley Railway / power station carpark in late 2017, but with no real photographic evidence.

    There are a couple of sightings on this here website of it still at Battlefield in 2020/2021.

    Does anyone have any thoughts?

    Probable that the various reports of DW150241 can be traced back to my Amendment Sheet 138 https://features.rcts.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/PcsbraC38.pdf The information came to me in good faith, although I have now queried it with the original source. I last visted the power station car park on 6/11/2017 and DW150241 was not present then.

    The Battlefield sightings do suggest that DW150241 actually never left there and may well still be there. Further sightings of DW150241 at the Battlefield would be welcomed.

    Worth also adding that it is far from clear which other departmental carriages have been located at Sharpness (Vale of Berkeley Railway sites) in recent years, when they arrived, when they departed and where they are now. The only one recently reported is 041838. It is believed DM395358, KDM395347 & DM395832 have moved to the new restoration base of the Churchill (8F) Locomotive Company, wherever that might be, whilst DW4 & DW92 have moved to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. There have been no sightings of CDB975841 for over six years.

    Having made further enquiries, I'm assured that DW150241 did move to Berkeley in late 2017, Subsequently it has moved to International Metals & Cable Recycling, Long Marston where I'm also assured it is still located.

    Guess those two Battlefield sightings must've been something else unless you have photos or any thoughts Roger / Graham?

    I've had a look on google maps aerial view (2023) and there does appear to look like there is a chocolate and cream full brake in amongst several other items. No guarantee tis is the coach in question. They are just north of a large collection of ex District line underground stock.
