Preservation Information
56208 was preserved in 1990 specifically to be used as a hauled observation coach, and has consequently never operated as a DMU in preservation. It entered service in the summer of 1991.

However it has remained in service as a hauled coach and currently carries a smart Carmine & Cream colour scheme, more usually associated with coaching stock.

56208, along with partner 59245, has been the "main" passenger stock of the Appleby-Frodingham Railway Preservation Society, which operate tours around the Scunthorpe Steel Works. Although listed as a private site, the tours are designed for the public and are pre-bookable via their website. They run at regular intervals, usually during weekends, throughout the summer hauled by one of the preserved industrial locomotives in the society's collection.

Future Plans
To maintain in service.
