ORGA Numbers

Post by Philip Chidlow » Thu Dec 08, 2005 4:30 pm

I had an idea as to how to waste more time! Why don't we see how many ORGA numbers we can collect from our BXs and compare those that were made on the same month/day... Seriously though, I used to know where to go to look up ORGA nos. online - any ideas anybody?

Cavmad has however left us for dead with his 1055 posts so far (and I thought Iwas doing well with 880)

Assuming the door hasn't been crunched, replaced with a different-coloured door and then resprayed to match the rest. As a consequence of overspray I have a 3-figure ORGA number, missing the leading 5!

5679 is apparently 27 May 1992, making the ferretmobile a slightly younger sibling of Stewart's BX :wink:
