Departure of an old friend

Dear all
 
The first wagon to arrive on our Railway has left us for pastures new. The wagon was bought by Martin Bromley who also provided Faraday for our use and these remained the only mobile plant for quite some time. I found a photo of the Tube Wagon with two subsequent vehicles provided by Martin, a Brake Van and Dogfish ballast wagon at Wirksworth together with a small people carrier donated by Balfour Beatty. This was named Dougal after the Magic Roundabout character as it could be rotated on is own axis.
 
The inevitable video is of Manchester Metrolink without Coca Cola:-
