This vehicle was built as a mark one Tourist Second Open passenger coach at Eastleigh works in Hampshire by British Railways and delivered in 1953 for passenger use, from lot 30054. This type of coach was a common sight on British Rail trains for many years.
We do not know anything of its passenger use at the time of writing. It was withdrawn from British Rail service in 1972 and was moved to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. It then moved to Peak Rail in 1986.
It arrived on the EVR in November 2010 and is owned by the 48624 Society (8F Group).
