Product Description
Carriage 111 is an observation first and driving trailer built in 1990 and financed under the INCA programme. It has now been replaced in passenger service and cascaded to permanent way work. This carriage was built as an Observation Car, Driving Trailer, Lavatory and Guard's area for the Ffestiniog Railway's Push Pull Set. As built the carriage carried a green and cream livery, but has since been repainted into the railway's standard maroon and cream. It entered service during the 1990 Gala without the toilet or central heating fitted and with temporary third class seating. At the Gala ran in push-pull mode with Carriage 121 (1981) and Carriage 117 (1977) with Conway Castle in the Green and Cream livery for the first time. Following this Gala the carriage was completed as a First Class Observation carriage, including the vacuum style lavatory and gas-fired central heating.In early 2000s the vacuum style lavatory was replaced with a gravity discharge type and heating replaced with diesel fired warm air heating. This also coincided with the livery changing to the standard fleet Maroon and Cream.

At the end of 2007 main season, 111 was withdrawn for refurbishment. The interior was upgraded to give a better ambiance including teak panelling and decorative ceiling. The outside was derusted as much as possible prior to a repaint. The repaint included changing the doors to be all cream. 111 was given a repaint in 2015. The doors reverted from being entirely cream to having the lower sections maroon. 111 is to be withdrawn from the service fleet after the introduction of Carriage 150 and its associated service car, Carriage 125. The decision for withdrawal was taken as there is limited seating and the rear-view is obstructed by the driving compartment, in addition to the Push Pull system falling out of use. It has since become part of the departmental fleet, with both its body and and bogies remaining intact.
