Anyone know anything about this coach please or who realistically owns it these days? I presume access is still difficult for removal? Indeed I presume it is still there?! - not noted since 2006 so any updated sightings welcome!

It is still at Neville Hill and visible from time to time from the main line.
It is only supposition, but it (and a Mk2 air con coach on the enxt track) appear to be used as some sort of "braked buffer stop" to which part rakes of HST coaches are attached when requiring stabling. In the past week or three HST trailers repainted in Stagecoach colours for East Midland Trains have been attached to this coach.
My supposition must be that ownership lies with East Midland Trains as the successors to Maintrain.
