    Is this a standard BR 57' Observation Saloon like the one made by Britannia Pacific Models in 4mm scale?

    Exactamundo. Yes it is, they also do a modified version that is based upon Serco Railtest's "Track Inspection Coach" (TIC)

    Has this vehicle been purchased by West Coast Railways? It has been seen at Southall over the last ten days or so in the company of some of their class 47's. I heard through the grapevine that WCRC were interested in purchasing this vehicle when it was put up for sale (possibly as a swap for other vehicles) so I assume that it has now been brought by them.

    WCRC dropped 999506 off at Crewe 24th April and was picked up by 20307+20310 and taken to DRS Gresty Bridge depot, so expect a new coat of blue paint soon !

    When viewed on 22/05/09 this vehicle is in the same condition as in the picture above. Although now no longer named 'Amanda' it interestingly still carries 'RAILTRACK' wording!
