Its either The 'Arco Test' or 'Arco Trent' built in Appledore as 'Amey 1'or 'Amey 2'. Sand Suction Dredgers operating on the South Coast U.K.

Its the Arco Trent and the coaster artwork is by Richard Wilson. Maybe the W is something to do with his name Wilson? And Z maybe somebody elses?

Who knows
