    Rumour I had heard was another operator was interested in buying these off Colas - so this might be the start of them moving elsewhere.

    Reported to be moving to Peak Rail. Last Friday 27/4 I passed Rowsley and there was a coach very similar to this on low loader - looked like it had just arrived. Sadly I couldn't stop that day.

    It might be a bit more visible now - the undergrowth has been cut back in readiness for being extracted.

    Was bought by Colas during 2016 (along with 6297), so not surprising that its been used as a brake force runner.

    This coach now seems to see more use as a brake force runner for NR/Colas!

    Yes, HSFV1 is at Shildon now, and is part of the National Collection at long last. Something I've been pressing for for YEARS!

    The grounded body of this and 041696 were still at Darlington until at least September 1996. Not sure when they eventually met their end.
