Can sadly confirm that 91132 was totally scrapped at Sims Dunkirk, Nottingham. A complete locomotive to parts in an afternoon. Such a sad and sobering sight. Many components looked brand new!

Are there some stored sets earmarked for Grand Union's Euston-Stirling service should it get the go ahead? I know it's unlikely to get approved, but ORR haven't thrown it out yet have they? There would be some embarased faces at Eversholt if ORR gave Grand Union the go-ahead but all off-lease IC225 sets had been scrapped.

May they get some of the 12 sets that LNER are about to bring back (Hopefully)?

I guess they are unlikely to require a full set of 9 coaches? There certainly seems to be a lower proportion of buffered end coaches going to scrap than other intermediate ones. Then again remnants of rakes seem to be disappearing at pace now, so who knows...

I assumed that just the removed vehicles from GC and TfW rakes going for scrap?
