3rd / 3rd  Class Saloon F.29

F.29 was the first of the saloons and was configured as two separate third class vestibules, a doorway being made in the bulkhead during a partial rebuild in 1989 which also included out-shopping it in the purple lake livery with gold lettering and two-tone green drop-shadow, as opposed to the original crimson and scarlet as shown below; it was converted to form part of the dining train in 2013 and fitted with dining seating and corridor connections at both ends, although the southerly connection remains unused as no further carriages have yet been modified to extend the dining train further. In 2011 the Association provided new seating moquette for this carriage during restoration works, these were used for a short time prior to conversion.  It was fitted with bus style windows in 1972 which were removed in 1988.  It is one of two saloons to have what are known as horseshoe tables, offering diners a view of the countryside as they travel.
