25771 in service25771 was built at Derby in 1961 to diagram number 146 of lot number 30685. The SKs were an early candidate for withdrawal, being replaced by Mark 2 Open, HST sets and Networker Turbo units.
25771 in preservation
It spent some time in Kidderminster Carriage Works, having been photographed there in 2007 for the Railway Heritage Register Carriage Survey.
In 2015 25771 was thoroughly overhauled at Kidderminster Carriage Works, having been photographed there in in May 2015 on Facebook, and outshopped in a later variant of BRBritish Rail or British Railways maroon livery-with maroon ends. Appropriately the interior is typical of latter day Mk 1, being clad with light grey patterned Formica. For the present its primary function is to replace vehicles from Set N that are withdrawn in turn for overhaul, but once that programme is completed this very useful carriage is certain quickly to find other work.
