One of a pair recently acquired in a box of parts. neither complete and both damaged through forceful dismantling and originally excessive use of polystyrene cement. As bought back in the 60s and 70s, these were an easy and straightforward build. As bought in bits recently, an absolute nightmare and a major raid on the bits box. Worth persevering with though as the only alternative was expensive brass, and these are attractive and unusual vehicles which are rarely modelled.

Yes, I know of two at least which survived after 1948: one was used as an office within a large goods shed and is now part of the collection at Didcot, having been fully preserved. Doubtless, being retired as an office under cover ensured its safety. The other I know of was converted into a tunnel inspection carriage in 1949. There must have been others dotted around the region, too, for a time. But only the Didcot one with us now I think.
