operated in preservation and has been in storage since withdrawal from BR. After spending several years in temporary locations, the vehicle was moved to the Churnet Valley Railway in 1996 to await its turn for restoration while vehicles in better condition were attended to.
In 2007, 50437 was put on static display during our Scenic Railcar Weekend gala as an example of an unrestored vehicle before being returned to store. 2016 saw the vehicle relocated to the East Lancashire Railway.
In the future, 50437 will be restored to 1980's condition (when resources allow) with the intention of operating with 59137 and 50494, representing a Buxton depot allocated BR blue Class 104 3-car set.
