    This unit used to be a class 309 4-car EMU although it now only has 3 cars. It is one of two departmental 309s (960101/102). One of these units is probably going to be preserved when its finished with with the Railway Heritage comittee and the ACEMU group both interested.

    Also note it has lost its front corridor connection which all 309s have.

    I am impressed by the apparent condition it seems to be in.

    From a preservation point, the gangways would appear to be the main problem, although obviously the internal arrangements cannot be seen.

    now its gone for store at pigs bay. If the ACEMU group doesn't have more help from preservation centres, then only one thing awaits.

    This unit, and sister 960101, have been given a temporary reprieve while owners Angel Trains investigate the possibility of further departmental use
