The Northampton and Lamport Railway, along with Northampton Steam Railway Limited, has announced that Mark 3 B Driving Van Trailer (DVT) No. 82114 has joined the railway on a permanent basis.
The NLR purchased the DVT as part of an ongoing project to increase the number of railway vehicles for passenger services.
The funding utilises a legacy donation in memory of Alfred Staden.
The project aims to create a full set of air-braked coaches while increasing the opportunities by preserving Mark 3 vehicles as a way of telling the story of British Rail.
The NLR has thanked Porterbrook for their assistance to progress this project.
DVT 82114 will remain in Greater Anglia livery, which is the operating company it was used with until recently when Loco Hauled Stock was withdrawn.
82114 will be fitted with a generator to provide electricity to the other carriages in the rake. This then allows non-ETH (Electric Train Heating) locomotives to haul the train throughout the year.
