Preservation Information
59522 was preserved on the Battlefield Line in 1994, however its history there is quite illusive.The vehicle is known to have been put up fpr sale in 2000 and was later moved onto the Chasewater Railway in 2004.

It is not thought that the vehicle has operated for some time, being stored out of service and retaining its BR Blue & Grey colour scheme. It is not known if there are future plans to restore the vehicle as a locomotive hauled coach as has been done with Class 116 TC 59444 and Class 127 TCL 59603 at the railway.
