In 1981 the Society bought an ex Southern Region CCT (covered Carriage Truck) to use as a parts store. After a varied career of use and neglect it has been restored by members of the Bluebell Railway's Carriage and Wagon (C&W) Department.
Here are some images of its career since 1981. Dave Clarke of C&W has a portfolio of restoration images on Flickr:
