Ipswitch docks grounded van body

Grounded Van body

Dating from 8th September 2001, this grounded van body lived in Ipswich docks long after the railway system has disappeared. I wasn't trespassing, the public could wander around and find this sort of thing. For all I know, they still can.

As you can see, it's rather more sophisticated than most. Someone has taken the time to fit some windows in the plywood bodied van and fill in the end ventilators. On the roof we even have a water tank, something I've never seen before. It's a veritable office made from an old railway wagon.
