Although built in the same year as Car 64, this was one of the all-steel cars built for the Queen of Scots service run by the LNER. Like Car 64, it came to the Bluebell via Bulmers of Hereford, and the VSOE.
It has received considerable cosmetic and bodyside repairs by contractors to put it into operating condition, as a temporary replacement for Car 64 in the Bluebell's Golden Arrow dining train. This Pullman Car seats 42 diners in considerable comfort.
Some of the interior now fitted to this car (mainly seating, tables and brasswork) was recovered from the remains of Car 105, part of the body of which was used until 1995 as a small restaurant at the back of a shop in Kensington High Street. Other components have had to be made a-new, to restore an authentic interior to this car, which was stripped internally to form an exhibition space on Bulmer's Cider Train.
A 360-degree view of the interior of this coach is available.
