    I suspect this is the first allocation of this number as the present 042197 is a very different vehicle. The number is just visible on the side of the coach.

    Yes it does seem strange - the SCT book has 042197 as being ex DB768924 ZDV allocated to Doncaster Wood Yard. Surely this is not the same vehicle.

    I suspect this is from the NER internal user series rather than the ER series. Numbers were duplicated between the two series.

    Nice photo - good to see vehicles like this one restored and carrying passengers again. As Mike says, it is E13366E, which is at the Severn Valley Railway carrying its earlier number 43612 last i heard. Very few of the first 04xxxx series have survived but this is one of them. The later 042197 allocated to Doncaster Wood Yard was a BR 12 ton van.
