Details: The other half of DISAB2, photographed at Ruislip Depot on 21st March 2009, is former cement mixer wagon CM954 (it is worth mentioning that these wagons are now referred to as CWs but they still carry CM prefixes). Fitted to the wagon are 7 power units (each with a Tube Lines logo!), connected at the top to a pair of flexible hoses. These provide the suction required to clear out wetspots in the trackbed. In operation, the two DISAB twin-sets each operate with a pair of GP flat wagons. One GP has a crane while the other carries replacement ballast, membrane rolls, etc. A flat wagon is presumably also required to support the front-end hose structure whilst in transit.
