The Group wishes to extend its sincere thanks to all at Arlington Fleet Services who have been most supportive in assisting us in our goal of recreating a pre-refurbishment 4CEP/BEP unit and to West Coast Railways for their assistance. The vehicles were hauled to Southall by West Coast Railways Class 33, 33025 along with Motor Luggage Vans 68001 & 68002; the latter utilised for conveying CEP parts and equipment.
Look on our Facebook site for further pictures. Please consider making donations, large and small are all welcome, and even better why not show support by joining the EPB Preservation Group.
