Additional Notes W 1972. At restaurant near Lyons (France) till repatriated by VSOE 1980. Stored in turn at Steamtown, Swindon, then 1987 Stewarts Lane. Stripped by VSOE for restoration but surplus to requirements and sold 05/02 to private owner on NYMR as "a basic shell, minus one end" for its bogies - but by 9/07 full restoration under consideration: 200k needed. Sold early 2011 to the 5-BEL Trust and to Sheffield Park 01/12 for restoration. 08/15: stored in sidings behind Horsted Keynes station - see Steve West's photo below. By 12/15: ownership transferred to Bluebell Railway - swapped with Pullman SR 282 "Doris" (qv), which has gone to Barrow Hill to form part of the 5-car "Brighton Belle" (5-BEL) set. "Carina" is much more appropriate for the Bluebell's needs.
