Preservation Information
50980 was preserved in 1993 with partner 52054 for use on the Bodmin & Wenford Railway, being purchased by their supporting organisation the Bodmin & Wenford Railway Trust.

The vehicle was made operational and painted into its original BR Green colour scheme to fit in with the line’s 1950’s/1960’s image.

Since then the vehicle has provided off peak services to the railway and continues this role today.
