Preservation Information
Details on 51370’s early preservation life are sparse, but the vehicle seems to have been preserved during the 1990’s with partner 51412 for the Chasewater Railway.

By 1999 51370 had been repainted into BR Green with half yellow warning panel. The vehicle provided off-peak diesel services on the Chasewater line for many years.

In 2003, 51370/51412 were the star attraction at the annual Railcar Association convention.

Between 2008 & 2010 the vehicle was (presumably sold and) moved onto a private site at Titley Junction where the station area was being brought back into use under the title “The Kingfisher Line”.

No reports concerning the vehicle have been received since its move to Herefordshire; the site is not normally open to the public except on selected open days.

Future Plans
None
