80224Built: 1960BR Mk 1 NNX

Lot No. 20573

80224 - 11th April 2005

This carriage was originally built as Brake Second 35291 but was converted by BR into an 'NNX' courier vehicle.

The carriage was originally purchased by the Society as a main line support coach, but the amount of work required was thought to be uneconomic and another coach was purchased instead. The coach was at first used for storage, but in 2007 was converted by the '38 Mob into a mobile real ale bar - 'The Black Python', first seeing use in this role at the 40 75 Gala 5-7 May 2007.
