Carriage 120 is an all third saloon carriage in the Tin Car series.
Carriage 120 was built in 1980 as a third class saloon with 32 seats and a toilet compartment. The underframe was originally from an Isle of Man Railway "Pairs" coach.
In June 2009 this carriage along with 'sister' 119 was transferred for use on the WHR, in response to heavy loadings after the launch of services through the Aberglaslyn Pass. During early 2010 the carriage entered Boston Lodge for a refit which included removing the toilet as it is of the obsolete gravity discharge type and replacing it with four extra seats. The refit has also seen the replacement of the original lino floor and carpet wall cladding as well as a complete external repaint. 120 re-entered service on the FR's B set in August 2010.
It is reported that this carriage has been sold, but the buyer is unknown. It will be witdrawn when a replacement Superbarn has been built.
