Currently in use as a static buffet/shop. Due to water leakage around the windows, new rubber seals and the main window panes need replacing, plus extensive repairs are required on both corridor connections. Estimated cost - £2200.
Should the railway decide to convert this vehicle back to form part of a train the shop area would need converting back to a seated area, the current 230-240v wiring removed and a complete rewire actioned, and the permanent plumbing reversed. Finally, as the vehicle is only air braked, a conversion to vacuum braking would be required. Estimated cost £18,000 - £20,000.
