We don't know anything more about this one - seems strange it has an IU number. If anyone knows any more please let us know.

The 079xxx series was more usually associated with Dock IUs, although I do have a photo of 079006 at an unidentified location of another unusual GWR coach. http://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/internal07xxxxdocks/e16da50d4

"According to Vol. 2 of John Lewis' Trailer books, it was A.30 No. 187, built 12/32, condemned 01/61, departmental 06/61. He lists it as "Traffic HQ & Mobile Office, Shrewsbury"
