    Slight bit of partially duff gen there Gareth. I got a private tour of Dc with my old friend Ian Longworth ( we first met while originally purchasing 304) 29 is another joint restoration like 14 and with the intention of having 2 rachets for use on the UDE so almost guaranteeing one will be available. Operational fleet strengthening with further air braked crossbench motors is planned to enable a fully open turnout on suitable days etc and ease wear all round, hoice of cars to be so returned/ rebuilt will depend on body etc condition and wear and frankly original build spec not just current nominal equipment, and the condition of the 29-31 batch bodies etc is better than the Paddleboxes. SMR 1,2, 4 and 5 have been fitted with new magnetic brakes activated from a special battery and inverter supply for full safety etc.
