    This thing always fascinated me, it just seems so odd. Were the verandas part of the conversion to departmental use or original? And does anyone know what the white fixings are to the end doors? They look to big for hinges and I was wondering if they may be some sort of measuring device.

    The white end fixings supported an internal central roof height girder that slides out with a manual chain hoist attached to allow heavy objects to be lifted to and from track level,

    converted from a period3 LMS third open m9347m so possibly side passenger doors at each end removed and roof cut back ?
