    After thinking this train had gone for scrap we got confirmation earlier this year (thanks to Brian!) that this and the rest of the Tribometer train (999900 and 975076 - visible here behind) were indeed still hiding in the depths of Derby RTC... They haven't seen use for quite a number of years though and what the future holds isn't clear...

    The whole train - 975046, 999900 and 975076 has now moved to Ruddington near Nottingham for preservation.

    As a Member of Dartmoor Railway, I get their Magazine, in the Current Issue are some good photos of this vehicle. Repairs to the bodywork have been carried out and it has now been repainted in the Lab 11 style/colour and looks very good. The generator has been removed, repaired and refitted. Rewiring is next on the agenda for this vehicle.

    Good to see that this has been repainted into a proper departmental livery, and not green!!

    Good shot of it brightening up a dull and wet Okehampton on The Railway picture of the day for 3rd March.
