Where are they now?
Where are they now?
 
The end of the Berliner's operational service meant that the rolling stock used was surplus to requirements, and was dispersed amongst a variety of museums and private railway operators. Almost all of the coaches used are still in existence in some form, and the details given below record what happened to them all.......
