BR Mark 1 Corridor First (FK) M13324 was built in August 1962 at Swindon Works, to work trains on the London Midland region.

A transfer to the Eastern Region occurred in May 1982 with a further reallocation to the Western Region occurring in April 1983 prior to a withdrawal from service in July 1992.

After withdrawal from service at Old Oak Common, London, M13324 was preserved and eventually arrived at the Mangapps Railway Museum in Essex.

When built M13324 was fitted with Commonwealth bogies as it was built as part of one of the last batches of Mark 1 Corridor First coaches.
At some point the bogies have been replaced by a pair of BR Mk1 bogies.

M13324 is owned by Northampton and Lamport Railway Charitable Incorporated Organisation (NLRCIO) after being purchased from the Mangapps Railway Museum in 2021 and subsequent arrival at the NLR on 08th February 2022.
