Google Maps Gascoigne Wood reveals many Pacers, a few HSTs but also something rather unidentifiable with 10 carriages. It's a fixed set by the looks of things.
You do realise that Google Maps satellite view isn’t live? There’s only one HST vehicle there now.

Thanks. Are 078 087 090 and 094 owned by Wensleydale or just stored there on behalf of presumably the leasing company.

I'm not sure. I've asked the same question on here too. It would be nice if some of those were saved as there aren't many of the second batch of 142s (142051-096) in preservation compared to the first batch.

All I do know is that 142018 is now preserved by the Wensleydale Railway, and will eventually be repainted into "skipper" chocolate/cream livery.

The latter looks to be a pair of Transpennine Express mark 5 sets coupled back to back. There were a couple stored there before June last year.
