Hawksworth third. Built in 1948. Purchased in 1968 from Didcot. Hawksworth carriages are not exactly thick on the ground and the Valley is lucky to have the only two full thirds to have survived. 829 went straight into service on its arrival before being restored in time for the Rainhill celebrations of 1980.
