Dear Sharpo, I am by no means an expert but could it be one of the three recent new C44 Loram Rail Grinding Machines? I think the numbering system is unusual being possibly, C4401, C4402 or C4403? Can anyone else throw more light on the question?

Reg,

I think it could be DR73901-04 as in a photo on this site

Obviously l don't want to get the numbers wrong.

Looking again at the caption of the photo link I posted, it is confusing, "DR79301-DR73904." I quickly read it as 739 instead of 793.

Having done searches on the correct number, I'm still a bit confused, do all 4 units have the same number or are they consecutively numbered as in 01 to 04? Comments on another photo published say "The Network Rail rail grinding units were DR79301, DR79302, DR79303 and DR79304." so I reckon that answers the question. Think I waffled a bit there......

Yes, that is correct. DR79301 is the unit nearest Bridgnorth

Thanks Robin, I guessed that would be the four numbers, but it's taken a while to get it confirmed.

I can update my YouTube video now.

Was it the railgrinder that left Kidderminster for Woking this morning? I'd been checking RTT to see when it was due to leave, but all I've seen listed was a 4Z01 from the Chiltern siding to Woking.
