This was thought to be the coach at Ashford CS underneath the new CTRL flyover but that one is in fact 083264. The coach pictured above is now thought to have been scrapped but confirmation is awaited.

This was formerly S3500 !!! 3500-14 were built as second opens when all other second class coaches were built as third open/third corridor etc!!!
They were used for the tri-class continental boat trains. Please note also the unusual centre door arrangement, where the middle door is in the middle seating bay, only these vehicles and FOs 3003-3019 had this (other than various SR EMUs later on in time!)
Does anyone know whether it survives still? Its unique if it does!
