    Weren't some of the wheels sourced from scrapped steam locomotives or
    their tenders? GWR Castle I think ,wonder if any were from the batch
    converted from Star class,that would have been appropriate.

    And I believe they previously had use of German anti-aircraft radar
    dishes liberated after the way.

    Hadn't heard that, I gather they used some surplus gun-laying radars.
    The met office also acquired some of those to track radio-sonde balloons.

    Actually - that depends.

    some of them are run via various WiFi networking schemes and you get
    access via that "cloud"

    1st class on Virgin trains and some of the lines include "free" usage
    - those carriages seem to have access without the payment portal.
