Thanks

Chris,
It was actually NVJ 372, you were remarkably close, and it was indeed Herefordshire's sole example.

The wheels you mentioned from the McBurney scrapyard are the same type as George already has on his engine as I have seen a picture of KSA363. These wheels were fitted as original spec to the F8 engines sent to Northern Ireland, they were given the additional title of "The Ulster" as they were narrower and shorter than the mainland UK machines. This was to enable them to negotiate the narrow Ulster lanes.
