    It is thought this wagon is either 023204 or 023215. See other Machynlleth picture on the site for further details about the wagons that used to be at this location.

    Think they moved from here to Ystwyth, in conjunction with DM395802, last seen there 2000.

    A tank was noted at Llanilar but not identified a few years ago - perhaps 023215. It is now thought to have been scrapped with 395802 and the underframe of 024507 late last year. The key to the mystery is several of the other tanks from here that are almost certainly at Cambrian Railway Society at Oswestry - possibly including the other rivetted tank 023204. If anyone is able to investigate it would be appreciated - thanks!

    The old rivetted tank that remains at Weston Wharf, Oswestry does not have spoked wheels like this so it does seem likely that the one there is 023204 a.k.a. "No.5" in red oxide livery unless anyone can prove otherwise! It seems 999010 and 024478 have probably been scrapped or at least dismantled to their underframes so for the time being I will assume disposed.

    I also now see this carries a letter E which, although it doesn't tally with Martin's comment under the other photo, may mean they were numbered A-E from left to right?
