105781 - 25-Oct-2008

This vehicle was owned by the late David Rawlinson, who based it initially at Steamport, Southport and then at Preston Dock. On his death it was bequeathed to the Great Western Society and moved to the Railway Age at Crewe in March 2004 where restoration was started under the auspices of the Society's North West Group. The vehicle was moved to Didcot in October 2008.

The underframe and running gear are in generally sound condition, but the upper body, is in poor condition and will require substantial restoration.
