    Could this claim to be the first 'company train' in the same way that EWS now have the silver 67 and maroon Mk3 rake.

    Also was there another set, possibly a Gloucester unit, painted pale blue in the mid-eighties that carried the name stourton saloon. I feel sure that I have a ropey picture of it in a bay at Lincoln Central about the mid-eighties.

    Both this vehicle and 975006 were condemned at Stourton C&W 04/80 and sold on in 02/82. The VCT website has them both preserved at Chasewater in 1981, which may well be true with official records not being updated promptly. However sightings at York in 1983 and RTC in 1985 are interesting as they were supposed to be at Chasewater, can anyone shed any light on this?
