    Long term resident of Newport Godfrey Road sidings and owned by EWS but it isnt clear exactly what this is used for these days...

    Last I heard it was used by the staff at Godfrey Road (I assume as some sort of mess room or stores vehicle) but I'm not sure if that's still the case. There are plans to move it in the future but it looks likely to be scrapped when that happens.

    This coach has always been locked and never been used as a mess coach since its arrival, though will probably be scrapped on site when EWS move to AD Yard, for sure the coach will not be coming as well!!!

    I did receive a call from one of the scrap companies asking if I was interested in this vehicle because it was a very early example of a Mk2 coach (2nd. oldest?)

    I wasn't but I passed the info onto an avid collector of Mk2s who I knew would have been. It would appear they have since completed the purchase and the vehicle is safe in preservation. No idea where it has been moved to though.

    The day after this photo was taken this coach was loaded onto road transport - last reported heading north along the M5 although its final destination is not certain at this stage...

    It is however thought to have been preserved rather than bought for scrap...

    Does anyone have any idea where this carriage ended up? Could it have joined the huge Mark 2 collection at Sinderby?

    No its definitely not at Sinderby or Heysham as both locations have been checked lately. One possibility is Melmerby which has some other mk2s stored there. Any other info welcome!

    Reported heading south on the A1 last week (10 June) which may mean the Dalton site is being cleared...? Booths the possible destination?
