    I would like to try and model this strange train, does anybody know what the original wagon was before it was converted into 460000, thanks.

    it was not converted from anything. it was built like that. judging by the number, pikes & sea urchins woulda been similar underframes

    Actually, the optical car was built on the underframe of the prototype SPA 460000, which is why its got a number in the revenue wagon series rather than the more logical departmental series (as per the trib van).
