25771 arrived on the SVR in September 1986 from London’s Old Oak Common, courtesy of the 75069 Fund. It was formerly part of the BR Maroon running set but has spent some time in Kidderminster Carriage Works, having been photographed there in 2007 for the Railway Heritage Register Carriage Survey and in May 2015 on Facebook.
it was thoroughly overhauled at Kidderminster Carriage works and outshopped in a later variant of BR maroon livery- that with maroon ends. For the present its primary function is to replace vehicles under overhaul from Set N, but once completed this very useful carriage is certain to quickly find other work.
