DescriptionBuilt in 1871 by the Stockton & Darlington Railway as a 6-wheel 3rd Class saloon. In 1876 the S&DR became the North Eastern Railway which converted it in 1884 to an Inspection Saloon (No.1661) for its Locomotive Superintendent, Edward Fletcher. In 1904 it was rebuilt to a 40 ft bogie vehicle. It became LNER No.21661 and BR No.E902179E and was not withdrawn until 1969 - only 2 years short of it's 100th birthday!
