Sadly off for scrap, 38002 seen way back in 2009!


  1. Not quite correct. One of the Tridents (possibly 79, made it to Kernow). 99 was towed into Taunton, where it may be repaired and sent on to Kernow, or it may be returned to South Yorkshire. The other three failed on delivery and were returned to SOuth Yorkshire, and are not now likely to transfer as planned.

    Of the 4 Darts, 60 is not on loan. It too was recovered to Taunton where it is awaiting areplacement engine before continuing to Kernow. The other 3 are indeed loans.

  2. Here is 38002 at Taunton Deane on September 23rd 2015.
