    Is this the vehicle marked 'Selhurst BTU' now parked (April 08) alongside Horsted Keynes Station??

    It is indeed 083607 (DS70129). Does not appear on Bluebell Stock List as intention is to dismantle for parts due to rotten body.

    Does anyone know the history of this vehicle from conversion from 1019 to DS 70129 in 1962? (Maunsell SR Steam Carriage Stock / Oakwood)

    When was it converted 'Internal User' 083607?

    When was it sold to Bluebell?

    Why have Bluebell not included in their Carriage Register when other vehicle to be used for parts have been included?

    Rumour has it, it is on its way to the Isle of Wight very soon so they can use the underframe for one of their projects.

    The carriage survey website says that the heavily rotted body has been removed at the Bluebell and the underframe transported to the Isle of Wight.
