Preservation Information
79441 was preserved on the Strathspey Railway. It was extensively refurbished internally, this being sponsored by a whisky firm which gave it its name "Glenfiddich".

Contaminated with asbestos and becoming a liability, 79441 had to be scrapped at MC Metals in October 1992.

The disposal of this vehicles was not seen as an issue as a further three E&G buffet cars were in residence at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
