Tollerton Shark brake van.

Post by repton » Thu Sep 01, 2016 8:39 am

I've just been over the railway at Tollerton and couldn't help but notice that the Shark brake van that has been sitting there rotting away has gone.

Anyone any idea where?

Found it!

It seems to have found its way onto a farm in the local area. I'm not going to post exactly where is case whoever owns it now doesn't want it made public but I've seen it today and it appears to be part of a small collection which includes another shark brake van, an LMS brake van and three freight box vans. I have some photos but can't add them from my phone it seems.

Over a year later and I happen to go to the same place and all six vans are still there, seemingly untouched.

These were bought to be converted into clamping units and were awaiting the glamping site ground work being completed, not on the farm by the way.
