    Its former number was 889302 (992xx number before that I think) and it was indeed a bullion van as you say. Spent its earlier IU days in a siding at Stafford (see other pic on the site) and was easily visible from passing WCML trains...

    These vehicles were converted from BSK's in 1965/6 and were, I believe, maroon to start with, none were allocated to the Southern Region. However in later years they were often stabled at Clapham as you say but by this time they were blue and grey. I'm pretty sure none recieved green livery

    These vehicles were all converted from ex- Southern Region BSK's (which would have been green before conversion), but I believe that as bullion vans they were blue & grey from the outset. The Railway Magazine published a colour picture early in 1967 of a steam-hauled Bournemouth express with a bullion van as the leading vehicle - it was in ex-works condition in blue & grey. 083636 &083637 were on the Southern for a number of years - one of their last uses was to transport electrical spares for the Isle of Wight ex - LT tube stock from LT premises to Fratton for onward shipment to the island.
