    It used to be available from HMSO Bookshops, but I'm not sure if these still exist.

    If it is, it refers to itself on several occasions! e.g.

    "General Boiler Examination
    An internal boiler examination having the same content as that defined in
    the 7 yearly Internal Boiler Examination defined in MT/276."

    "5.2.1 The Steam Locomotive owner shall keep comprehensive records
    that show any defects that occur during its operation on any railway
    infrastructure and record all repairs undertaken. In particular, the items
    defined on Part 1 of form ‘F’ in MT/276 , shall be reported to the
    Certification Body and made available to the Train Operator."


    There are more. This document stipulates certification requirements, not examination requirements.

    I think MT276 is now part of the Network Rail standards catalogue, will have a look when I'm back in the New Year as I get access to it through LU.
