4236 in service

4236 was an example of the varnished teak rolling stock designed by Nigel Gresley for the LNER. It was built at York in 1938 to diagram 245. It was renumbered 70459 in 1946, and ended service in 1974 having been renumbered E70459E and repainted in BR Blue livery.

4236 in preservation

4236 was purchased by a member of the Erlestoke Manor Fund, arriving on the SVR in April 1975. It was repainted in LNER brown "imitation varnished teak" livery in time to attend the Rainhill 150 Celebrations at Shildon in that year. On return to the SVR it became The Erlestoke Manor Fund's shop at Bewdley, a role it retained until 1983 when it was swapped for LNER 24105 Open Third.

The Railway Heritage Register Carriage Survey reports that 4236 has been scrapped since leaving the SVR.
