SRPS Core Collection, acquired 1987 with grant support from the National Fund for Acquisitions.
Mainline service. LMS maroon livery.
Built 1960, Birmingham Railway Carriage & Wagon Company Ltd. Diagram 24

This coach ran in maroon and in blue/grey livery. The SRPS Core Collection includes First Open coach No.3096, a type which often ran with a Restaurant Car, meals being served in the First Open. No.3096 is in "late" rebuild condition, and so could logically be repainted in its "late" colours of blue/grey, in which case the Restaurant Car could be similarly treated.
