Scrapped on site at Old Dalby by MRJ Phillips in March 1996

On 10th January 1973 a test train heading north 'ran out of road' whilst carrying out a high speed test with the 'POP' train and Lab Coach 3, slid through the arrester bed and finished up 'on the floor'. Luckily nobody was hurt and the train sustained only minor damage.
