Of the same type as 7612, No. 609085 has been restored to the LNER livery it carried after the grouping.

An original GER ratchet type handbrake is still fitted.  It also has buffer blocks to check the bottom hinged side doors as they are dropped to open them.

The wagon still has its GER wheels and sets, but with LNER buffers fitted.

The wagon arrived at Quainton in July 1971 from the Ministry of Defence depot at Bicester from where it was purchased. It carried MOD number AD47378.
