Carriage 121 was an all third saloon carriage in the Tin Carr series built in 1981 by Boston Lodge in 1988 121 was fitted with Pattern 88 Bogies larger Beclawat windows, gas fired heating and the necessary pipes and cable for push pull operation. It was fitted with several types of seats as a trial for new seating type. Initially painted in the "Upside down" livery of Green and Cream, it was subsequently fitted with the new style red third class seats and painted in the push-pull livery of Green and Cream. The heating was removed in 2003 and was painted in standard livery of Cream and Red. This carriage had easily removeable seats and was therefore used as the Disco carriage for staff party trains with the seats being removed one afternoon, the disco built for the evening event and then the seats replaced early the next morning. Unfortunately, it was destined to be the shortest lived of the new carriages. Withdrawn from service in the Autumn of 2005 and was scrapped. It was intended to modify the steel body for its new role but this was found to be impractical after the work had started. Thus the body was removed and the underframe and bogies were used for the construction of service car NO.124 When the body was removed from the underframe, one of the ends was removed and sold on eBay in March 2006 to raise funds for tools at Boston Lodge. During March 2010 it was announced that the Ffestiniog Railway Society was to fund a Superbarn that would be numbered 121 a twin Carriage 103.
