    Not the Duchess support coach (which is a Mk 1 BSK), this I guess, is their Directors saloon. It is actually the old LM region General Managers saloon and is a bit of a hybrid, consisting of an LMS body on a short (suburban) Mk 1 underframe. Still looks mighty nice, though!

    Who owns this vehicle? Seen it being towed around the country invariably by FM Rail locomotives (31454 and 33103 have pulled it through Lincoln before) but once with WCRC's 57601. Thought it was an FM Rail carriage but the latter sighting disproves this theory.

    Apparently the Inspection Train from Carnforth to Bristol has a saloon no. that is 6320.

    Pictured just before it came to Cambridge TMD where we repainted it in BR maroon and carried out a C3 overhaul. Bogies where swapped with 92530 which was one of our stores vans but later became the rubbish van at Euston Downside.

    Looked like it was being used for a private party when seen today at Ramsbottom in a service train.
