Warning : Fire-damaged 159 wheels
There was a 159 at a breakers in Inverkeithing (Fife) recently. It was totally burnt out, with nothing salvageable on it whatsoever.
I learnt today that the wheels were at a shot-blaster nearby being refurbished.
If anyone is offered these, or sees them advertised, I'd urge them not to buy them as they are most likely to be extremely dangerous. They'll have experienced a LOT of heat, and quite possibly a sudden cooling once the fire brigade arrived.
I'm not sure what the name is for the style of them, but they looked a bit like 156 teledials.
If anyone's buying a set, please ask where they came from and be wary of a completely refurbed set from the Fife area!
