Thanks. Only asked because I didn't notice it in its usual spot today.

The LNER
(SVR) Coach Fund has donated its remaining two carriages GNR 2701 & TTO/Wheelchair carriage 24105 to the
SVR Trust. And the SVR Holdings Company has agreed to transfer its two Gresleys Buffet Car 643 & TTO 43612
to the Trust on mutually acceptable terms. In consequence the Charitable Trust now owns all nine of the Gresley teak
carriages on the SVR. This secures their ownership for the long term and is a very welcome outcome.

Richard Gunning has edited the wiki page to state "On Wednesday 17th August 24506 was successfully test run between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth behind GWR/PTR No813. It was added to Set N on Friday 19th prior to its first run in SVR passenger service on Saturday 20th August."
According to 'Meet the Locos' and the Traffic Notices, it will be on CS1 behind 50031.

According to Wiki the underframe swap took place on 12/7/11 and the carriage left Bewdley C&W on 30/7/15. This 4 year time frame for the rebuild/conversion of a teak by volunteers, represents the ultimate in carriage restoration done in record time, and is a credit to all involved.

Yes, I thought it was an impressive achievement deserving a bit of a fanfare, yet it doesn't seem to have had any official recognition so far.
It looks like everything's on track for nine teak coaches by the end of September as well, a preservation milestone in itself, but that only gets mentioned in passing on the Charity Day page.

In postings of the teak set, particularly the nine carriages with Flying Scotsman, the dark colour of the wood on three carriages was a significant contrast to the lighter colour of the rest of the set.

From recent photos, one of the darker carriages now appears to be undergoing renovation, and I have to wonder if it is possible to sand back the surface to bring back the lighter colour. I had assumed the dark colour was set due to the age of the wood or perhaps a property of that particular type of teak. However most of the other carriages presumably have some old or original teak panels yet in the photos they appear generally to be overall lighter.

The darker colour does have an historic look but just curious about the reason for the variation.

The dark colour is the soot stained varnish. Over the last couple of weeks the panels have been stripped back or removed. The maroon mark 1s are the same. The paintwork is in fairly good knick but the varnish has become engrained with soot and dirt.
