This Bristol VRT, registered BNU 679G, first entered in to service in 1969, operating in Midland Generals fleet. In the 1980's after a short spell working for Trent Motor Traction Company, it was sold to British Rail to be used as a mobile staff training vehicle, by their Department of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, based at the Railway Technical Centre, London Road Derby.
Once in non-passenger service BNU 679G was given a makeover and repainted in the unique eye catching livery of British Rail, many of its windows were removed and filled in and the bus seat interior was stripped out to make it more suited to a new role as an office space for staff training.
BNU 679G has had a varied life after leaving British Rail in the late 1990's it operated as a mobile Evangelical centre named 'SINE METU' (Latin for 'Without Fear') up until 2003 when it was then purchased for preservation. It was last known to be residing at The Midland Railway Centre, Derbyshire, where it was being painstakingly restored back to a passenger service vehicle.
