    Thats a very ominous man eating hole on the end. Tapered inlet implies air current/deflection .

    when testing the APT-E, i believe some tests involved running through a tunnel with a stationary train on the other line, to measure airflow effects from a train at high speed.

    perhaps this was involved in those? - notice also holes on the coach side, presumably for instrumentation?

    I purchased a builders plate recently which claims to have come from this coach

    It was built in Derby to Lot No 30003 in 1951 Diagram 181 and was converted from a BSK
