Preservation Modifications

Preservation Information
Little is known of this vehicle. Preserved in the early 1990's, the vehicle appears to have operated some services on the Strathspey Railway, in multiple with Class 107 DMBS 52008. At some point the vehicle received BR Green livery.

In 1996, 56047 was partially refurbished with new carpets and seat covers in the first class saloon.

In 2000 Class 107 DMCL 52030 was returtned to traffic, releasing 56047 from the operating set for overhaul.

56047 is currently in store awaiting its turn for restoration.

Future Plans
To return to service when resources are available.
