About the Class 117 – W51360

Formerly resident at The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway in Derbyshire, W51360 was purchased by CDRL and delivered to The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway on Friday 20th September 2013.

Class 117 – Spare Powered Car – W51360

W51360 is identical in most respects to W51363, other than the obvious livery difference; W51360 is currently in 1970’s all over British Rail blue, and there are no immediate plans to change this arrangement.

In 2015 a “partner” for W51360 was acquired, Class 107 – SC52029, this will in turn allow CDRL volunteers to then systematically withdraw other vehicles from traffic in order to undertake more in-depth maintenance.
