    Is this the coach at Peterborough which was painted in blue towards the end of the 1990s, or am I losing my marbles and getting it confused with something else?!

    I think you may be losing your marbles because I *think* I saw it still in yellow at the Severn Valley Kidderminster back in 1998....

    Does anyone know why this coach seems to have Blue Star Multipul Working Equipment fitted (the orange jumper and white air pipe)?

    It looks like there may be a plated up window in the end, judging by the ripples in the chevrons - maybe it had seen use as a driving trailer? Although the 1993 photo shows no evidence of the blue star cable/air pipe, but the 2003 pic has the white engine control pipe!

    It's also now dual braked (or at least through piped) . I'd love to know why this vehincle has had these mod's carried out. Obviously it's for a reason as to through wire and through pipe is quite excessive not to mention expensive!

    Having seen the picture mentioned in Colin's post above, I can say that i'm very impressed. That is a nice conversion. 10/10
