This coach has languished in Crewe South yard since the 1980s and has suffered as a result! The bodywork and interior is in very poor condition. Scrapping is imminent (cutting is taking place to the left of the photo beyond the blue/grey post van 84519) although there is a note scribbled on it to say the bogies are to be saved.

Still intact 6 June 2005 but the scrapman is just 2 coaches away!
May be gone by end of the week

This coach saw in 2007. Although vehicles around it are starting to be cut again so may not have to suffer for to much longer.

Is there no hope for this in the preservation market. Im sure it is in poor condition but plenty worse have been preserved.

Incredible though it may seem this vehicle is still clinging to this mortal coil. Any more news on its scrapping/salvation?

I dont think it will be saved as some preservation group has been at the coach for parts. The bogies are marked to be saved, all the door locks have been cut out of the doors, the brake system has been robbed, and the lighting parts removed.
