Service and preservation
21254 was built at Derby in 1963 to Diagram 171 (AB301), Lot 30731. It entered service in the Eastern region in February 1964, where it remained apart from an allocation to the Northeast region between July 1966 and January 1968. Prior to withdrawal from service in 1981 it was noted in use on the "Night Scotsman" services into Kings Cross. It arrived on the SVR on 21 August 1981 from Bounds Green, having been purchased by a trustee of The Erlestoke Manor Fund.
In May 2017 it was undergoing restoration with all 10 doors, including locks, serviced, plus a full repaint.
It was photographed in March 2015 as part of the BR Maroon set.
