    Yet another useful rail vehicle going to waste - I wonder if they would be prepared to sell it?!

    This coach retained all but one of its compartment bulkheads and the toilet compartments existed but were stripped out.would have been an easy coach to restore as it was basically complete by departmental standards.

    This vehicle was scrapped onsite at the same time as 975071 (also at Heaton ECD) as the latter vehicle was attacked by the locals and set on fire in early summer 2004 causing serious actual bodily harm that finally proved to be fatal. 975071 was a surviving example of a very early Mk1 - c. June 1951? - and Mk1 production only started in January 1951. Another bit of railway history that has gone for good
