Collett open brake third. Built 1940. Purchased in 1989 from Kerne Bridge. This carriage is one of two built to run with the final excursion sets although by the time they were built, they went straight into general use. This carriage ended its days as a dormitory for the Gloucester Boys Club at Kerne Bridge station, long shut. It was first moved to the sugar beet factory in Kidderminster being moved to the Valley when the sugar beet closed down.

Following years of dedicated restoration 650 was launched into service October 2015 and is now usually part Severn Valley Limited dining set.
