4365 4365 is a semi open brake third built in 1948 for use in set 298 - one of the 6 coach dining sets for Waterloo to Bournemouth services.  It originally had its lower body sides extended to the bottom of the solebar.  It was replaced in this set by BR Mk1 BCK S21268 in June 1965 and withdrawn in May 1966.  It was then sold to the army then bought for the Swanage Railway in October 1977.  It is pictured here in a rather dilapidated condition at Corfe Castle on 16 September 2000.

1469 is an open third built in BR days (1950) for use as "loose" stock - i.e. not permanently allocated to a set. It was one of eleven swapped with the Eastern Region for Mk1s needed for conversion into MU stock for the Bournemouth electrification project. It was withdrawn in April 1969 and acquired by the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway in 1970 where is is pictured here in 1971.

Departmental Brake The coach depicted here was outside the depot at St Leonards when it was photographed sometime during the early 1980s. It is believed it was there in connection with training for the electrification of the Hastings line.

The same coach in the same place, as photographed in 1986. Nice to see that it was obviously being well cared for.
