May be a stupid question but looking at the photos of these GNER barrier coaches with the side doors sealed up - presumably the only access inside is through the end doors? Although maybe there is never a need to go inside? Are they completely stripped out? Any lighting etc? Or maybe they still have seats?! Any info welcome!

Does this particular coach even have end doors? Looks like the corridor connection has been removed and plated over. Good question though, could there be a hermatically-sealed Mk2 in there?

In the other picture of it there is a corridor door. And on the pictures of 6354/6355 they have a door in the centre which doesn't seem sealed...

If it is just a barrier, then presumably the bodyshell is not really required at all except to maintain the tare weight of the vehicle, what do these vehicles work with ?

"what do these vehicles work with ?"
"6352 Mark 4 Barrier coach".

Notice the door hinges are that of a mk 1 coach? Also the door opens on the opposite side of a standard mk2.

No, this is a standard Mk2, actually a Mk2a FK (later converted to a CK in Scotland by having 4 first class and 3 standard class compartments). The door is normal for an early Mk2, they all have hinges on the left hand side. Later Mk2 intercity carriages with wrap-around doors open the opposite way, i.e. all open away from the carriage.

If someone has seen these recently can you please add updated sightings

I've seen plenty Ben but I don't know which ones. The problem is that the small dark blue numbers are very difficult to read on the orange stripe from any position other than really close up and stationary, hence the many sightings of 6353 at the NRM for railfest.
