A Bubble Car to be used on the NSR? - 13 December 2016
The bubble car was built in 1960, being given BR number 55025 and later designated Type 121. It was in public service until 1993 when it was converted to Departmental use. Subsequently it was cannibalised for spares. Much work is needed as seats had been removed, some doors welded shut, large diesel engines had been installed for driving auxillary equipment, and propulsion equipment must be replaced.
It is ownd by the DPR Carriage Group, arriving at Long Marston in May 2016. See picture in Gallery / Concept.
