713 meanwhile became a flat wagon only thanks to an arson attack, having been preserved by us as a complete 70 Class driving trailer in 1991. On Boxing Day of 2002, would-be thieves set fire to our station building and 713, having been stabled outside it, became caught up in the inferno. With the body wrecked beyond saving, we reluctantly removed the charred remains and have used 713 as a flat wagon ever since.
