    For those who've been following Test Car 2's progress this year, keep your eye out for the December issue of Rail Express magazine, in which there is a feature on Resurrecting the Test Car and a bit about it's history.
    Then if you still haven't seen enough photos of Test Car 2, there's some more in my Flickr album here:-

    Surprised to see one of the containers mounted on a Conflat late yesterday afternoon from a passing train, particularly when the container appeared to be being signwritten in the morning. You don't hang about!

    We strategically left any signwriting that would hinder the lift and as soon as we knew no other vehicles were coming into the South Yard we went for it.
