History: 49 (later renumbered 249) passed through a number of hands before ending up back with the WCT for their museum fleet. Restoration started, which unfortunately ended up with most of the seats and glass missing, before passing to the Omnibus Society fleet. Considerable work has been carried out rebuilding the frame work for the rear end and roof with work continuing on the front end.
