    Do DRS still have any of the MK3 fleet they were collecting for at one point? They had about 11 coaches and a DVT iirc.

    What's the plan for them? They seem to be putting all their eggs in the MK2 basket at the moment.

    Not sure if DRS had 11 Mk3's, but I thought they had pulled together a rake, including the spare Virgin DVT, for the Class 68 testing. This clearly didn't happen as testing was done with a mix of Mk2's. Recent photos show the DVT looking in a rather sad condition at Barrow Hill. As for the rest of the Mk3's ....?
