Is this the former Driving Trailer from the Eastern Region Push/Pull set that was used in the timing trials for the introduction of Push/Pull working on the Edinburgh- Glasgow Services in the early 1970s.I remember seeing a similar vehicle being Craigentinny about that time

Should now be at the G&WR via Booths as a belated swap with RB 1811.

It is indeed at G&WR but it did not go anywhere near Booths!!!

swapped the the GCRN for RMB 1811. 1811 is now in Maroon and looks nice, does anyone know what the future plans are for 975076?

975076 is being restored at the GWR. Work is progressing well and we hope to test her with a blue star loco in the next couple if months. Haven't made a final decision on the interior yet. The original compartments were converted by the RTC and will require a lot of work to reinstate. The vehicle will be returned to its early 1970's lined maroon livery to begin with and go into our service stock. This may provide the first opportunity for public travel in this unique vehicle. I dare say that push pull travel in this with the GWR's 24081 on the train will be of interest to some. Does anyone have any other photo's of this vehicle on the national network?
