One of the last Shark vans still, as at Nov. 2017, on the Nat. ( ex BR) Network is stored at Tavistock Jn Yard near Plymouth ..it has been stored/ disused for at least 5 years ..last used as a vehicle for Shunters to ride in during propelling moves of wagons that were loaded on the Cattewater line with scrap.

It needs saving !
