    Interesting to see that this unit has retained it's "Railtrack" livery.

    It seems as it now also carries it's unofficial name of "Pandora", this name, although used was never carried during the years when this unit was operated by Balfour Beatty.

    Now withdrawn due to a "Failed Axle". This unit has been retired 10 weeks early, but was to have been withdrawn on the 31st December as the vehicle is not fitted with OTMR

    Was a new owner ever found for this unit, or is it still available for sale?

    The unit was removed from sale, and apparently is not for disposal at the moment.

    I'm told this has been used as a donor for Chiltern's 977828 / 55034 at Tyseley and the remains will go for scrap soon....
