Built by Fauvet Girel in France for Storage & Transportation Systems with a 90ton GLW. On hire to Esso when photographed, I suspect it may have gone out of use at that time - 1985.
No, wrong. There is an internet photo from 1986 showing it was repainted and returned to traffic. http://80srail.zenfolio.com/p3102060/e2fb84123
