British Railways Standard Steam Stock (Mk.1)
Corridor Second (SK) No.25871 - (built in 1962)

BR Mk.1 SK 25871

The former SK No.25871, now the Carriage Shop at Horsted Keynes (Richard Salmon)

Built as an SK (Corridor Second), it was one of twelve coaches modified in 1989 to form the "Travelling College" train, which, it was intended, should carry parties of school-children around the country on educational tours. The venture was commercially unsuccessful, and the Bluebell subsequently bought all twelve vehicles. Having been converted into a dormitory, it was stripped of the bunk-beds which were fitted to it, and has since been used as our "Carriage Shop" at Horsted Keynes.
