Coach MK FO 3086 The Interior of the coach owned by the trust

Progress is being made on the coach, we now have part windows in one side.

August 2014

The trust owns MK FO W3086, purchased by donations made to the DWVRT for the specific purpose of purchasing this carriage.


FO is the designation of a First Class Open carriage.


The photo shows the interior. This carriage had its interior sealed up

in the early 1980s when it was made part of a

train used as a dead weight for testing locos that were out shopped from Crewe works. The panels over the windows

have protected the interiors from theft, damage, and water.


It is planned that this coach will be restored to running order during 2015/16
