16169 was built at Derby in 1961 to diagram number 126 (AA201), lot number 30665. It entered service in the Midland region. In 1983 it was renumbered as M7169, being reallocated to the Scottish region in January 1986.
16169 was withdrawn from service by BRBritish Rail or British Railways at Heaton, Newcastle in 1988, where it had been in use on cross-country services. It arrived on the SVRSevern Valley Railway in August 1989 been purchased by SVR(H). It has seen use in the BRBritish Rail or British Railways Maroon set, but by 2006 was described by the Railway Heritage Register Carriage Survey as "externally very shabby and due for refurbishment". In 2007 it was withdrawn from service and was photographed in July 2015 stored in Kidderminster Carriage Shed awaiting overhaul.
