"A DERBY rail-engineering firm has transformed an old flat-bed truck and brake van into a £500,000 ultrasonic test vehicle.
Sperry Rail carried out the work as part of a five-year contract for Iarnród Éireann, the organisation running the Irish national rail network."Also find some photos of wagons previously mentioned in this thread.Vans at Foynes Nos. 23659 and 23689.
The unusual 27697 at Athlone Midland.
And the long time resident at Dromod.

I'd love to hear it.At a minimum you have to convert it to air braking, fit roller bearings and modify the suspension, still can't imagine travelling in it at 40-50mphMore pertinently, what happened to it and where is it now?

Indeed I can't seem to get those answers from any contacts in IE! Anybody got contacts in Derby?
If it was to be paired with 30219 it wouldn't have needed air brakes as 30219 still retains vacuum brakes! A 2 axle type wagon would never be allowed travel over 40mph under any circumstances and especially if it were to have a crew! Incidently the dangers of 2 axle wagons traveling over 40mph was most recently highlighted on 14th April 2007 when Sperry SRS241 derailed at 49mph near Cronmore, Co. Antrim.

What happened to the cabin ends and doors? It looks just an empty shell now. Does anyone know what actual role it's now designed to fulfill?
