    Les tells me:

    "083631 is still an Internal user at Selhurst, but has not turned a wheel for many years.

    On the Norwood end it has its original buffers and coupling hook, whilst at the Selhurst end it has retractable OLEO buffers and a drop head Buckeye coupling. The Buckeye and coupling hook can be removed and a bar coupler fitted to allow it to be coupled up to the intermediate couplings of Classes 319, 455 & 456 ect to allow vehicles to be shunted around the yard."

    It was converted from a Mark 1 CCT van 94477 and renumbered B 902612 for use with London Underground.

    I notice that no sightings have been added since Dennis visited in 2013, this is despite a couple of visits in 2016 by those who report very conscientiously. The VCT http://www.cs.vintagecarriagestrust.org/se/CarriageInfo.asp?Ref=15548 suggest that this vehicle has been scrapped, This is possible, whilst alternatively, it would have made a very useful donor under-frame for one of the many carriage bodies in preservation seeking an under-frame. Did anyone who visited in 2016 make enquiries regarding this vehicle and if so what were they told?
