    Th information I have for this vehicle was condemned at Whitemoor Up Repair Sidings in 5/75, and moved from Whitemoor Yard to W.E. Knappett on 9/7/75 for scrap, but was then moved to preservation at the East Anglian Railway Museum, Chappel & Wakes Colne c. 9/75, then to the Great Central Railway, Loughborough on 17/5/81.

    Officially at least this was sold to Archie King & Son Ltd, Snailwell on 12th June 1975 under British Rail tender document 52/230/552T/050 and was recorded as arriving at the scrapyard during period 9/1975 according to official documentation. Can anyone how it came to be rescued for preservation at all please.

    Probably DE320931 and DE320427 will be two of the Teak carriages not sure about the third.

    I managed to get permission to walk around the top yard at Grosmont, and was told that the three covered up coaches were all Teak vehicles, but the young lad taking me round did not know the numbers. We were then approached by a NYMR chap who took umbrage that HE had not been asked, and got quite shirty, but despite the lad saying I had been given permission, he was adamant I should go, and not wanting to cause a problem, I made a donation to the NYMR at the shop and left.

    It's at Grosmont. It is sheeted and you can see it from the rail walk footpath that overlooks the depot. It has a roof section missing so the sheet has formed a pool full of water. That was the last time I saw it a couple of years ago.

    When I visited in May, there was only one sheeted coach in the aforementioned siding, this was E110. I didn't personally observe 44408 anywhere, but I didn't access any of Grosmont.

    I was told that this vehicle was one of the covered up vehicles on the siding near Levisham Station.
