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

By 1999 51412 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, 51412/51370 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”.

In August 2010, a photograph taken during a rare public open day (A Jazz Festival) showed 51412 as being in operation as a loco hauled control trailer. It was also noted that the vehicle had been repainted since arrival, into BR Green with Speed Whiskers.
