Service and preservation
16202 was built at Derby in 1961 to Diagram 128 (AA302), Lot 30666. It entered service in the Western region in July 1961, transferring to the Southern region in February 1964. It was slightly damaged in an accident, leading to an early withdrawal from service in 1977. It arrived on the SVRSevern Valley Railway in May 1977 from Micheldever, Hampshire.
The carriage was refurbished in 1999, with a further overhaul and repaint in 2011. It is normally used in the BRBritish Rail or British Railways Crimson & Cream running set, and is owned by SVR(H).
