I wonder how many Theatrical Scenery Trucks were ever in use? Are there any still in existence?

This question may be answered with reference to Jenkinson's book, but there were both open and covered Theatrical Scenery Trucks.

Covered:-
D.440 6
D.441 6
D.442 6

Open:-
D.461 6
D.462 27

None still exist. They were mostly withdrawn in the 1950s, the last being 1961. By then touring theatrical companies has ceased to exist. 15 of D.462 were rebuilt in 1934 at Wolveron under LMS Lot 793 to Luggage and Parcels Vans. These were withdrawn 1964-1969.
