    standard blue & grey i think - it was converted c.1976 when HSTs were being introduced on the WR, the mk3 coaches were ready but power cars had not been delivered so this was used to enable the sets to be loco-hauled. possibly also used since for testing of new/ overhauled HST stock.

    not to be confused with the similar generator vans 6311 etc. as these provide standard ETS, whereas this vehicle only provides 415v, 3-phase for HST stock.
