Is this a converted APT carrage?

this must be APT-P coach 48204, a trailer second modified to take two BT32 non-articulated bogies. originally it had two BT11(?) articulated bogies which it shared with neighbouring coaches. modified as a test car for a proposed APT-U project (essentially same vehicles in different formation) - see http:/apt-p.com for full details

Did you mean "modified to take two BT12 non-articulated bogies".
co-designer, BT12 bogie

i'm sure i remember reading it somewhere as BT32 - i knew the BT12 non-articulated bogie already existed, i assumed this was a modified versh to fit under this coach

did the BT11 bogies pre date the ones on the French TGVs and if so did they use our technology to design their bogies
