Ian Allan: High Peak Express 25/9/55
Depicted at Derby station is former LNER Coronation beaver tail observation car E1729E in the corporate blood & custard livery it wore during the early part of the 1950's. I don't know when this livery was applied but it was rebuilt in 1959 with a wedge shaped rump which did nothing for its good looks and BR corporate red livery didn't really suit it either.
