Some members may remember our Western Region First Open MkII coach (W5255). This coach was originally bought from the West Coast Railway Company in 1996. It was air braked and our plan at that time was to convert it to vacuum braked. It was later sold to the Aln Valley Railway, and then on to the Mid Nor- folk Railway, where it works on their diesel-hauled air braked set.
