    Lab 10, previously just known as 'The BSK', was used as a generator car to provide house power for POP Train in its original open form. As seen here it was originally used in standard BR Blue/Grey but later had the grey replaced with RTC Red.

    The air intake grille for the Dale generator cooling fan can just be seen toward the far end of the vehicle. Note also the viewing window on the far side of the corridor connection to provide a view for the brakeman during reversing movements on the Mickleover and Old Dalby test tracks.
