Class 100

Built by the Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Co in 1957, six class 100 vehicles became early subjects of preservation seeing extensive use in the 1970's & 1980's. However wear & tear lead to all six seeing a decline in condition, the last example carrying passengers about 20 years ago. The scrapping of two vehicles in 1991 and a third in 2016 has meant only one operating set can be recreated in the future. It is hoped that restoration progress will enable at least one class 100 vehicle return to passenger use at some point in the future.
