Mk.1 Post Office Stowage Van (POT) No.80437

Owned by Locomotive Owners’ Group (Scotland) Ltd., acquired 2007.
For conversion to a shop, Post Office red livery.
Built 1976, York. Diagram 727A, Lot 901.

Postal traffic required secure vans for stowage of sorted mail. These vans ran with sorting coaches such as our 80382. However, the national mail train network was withdrawn in January 2004, making the fleet of post office coaches redundant.

This van is being converted by its owners for use as a sales outlet.
