Service and preservation
25771 was built at Derby in 1961-2 to Diagram 146 (AA210), Lot 30685. In entered service as M25771 in the London Midland region in February 1962, being renumbered M18771 in August 1983.
It spent some time in Kidderminster Carriage Works, having been photographed there in 2007 for the Railway Heritage Register Carriage Survey.
In 2015 25771 was thoroughly overhauled at Kidderminster Carriage Works, having been photographed there in in May 2015 on Facebook, and outshopped in a later variant of BRBritish Rail or British Railways maroon livery-with maroon ends. Appropriately the interior is typical of latter day Mk 1, being clad with light grey patterned Formica. For the present its primary function is to replace vehicles from Set N that are withdrawn in turn for overhaul, but once that programme is completed this very useful carriage is certain quickly to find other work.
