    Am I missing something but isn't the previous photo on the page of 999508 a completly different coach? Me thinks this is not the right number for THIS vehicle.

    As far as I am aware it is the same coach - converted from an inspection saloon to a test train coach.

    It is the same vehicle, given away by the 2 front windows rather than the usual 3 on the 9995xx vehicles, also don't forget these are asymetrical vehicles, this is the other side to the Serco pic.

    DB999508 started life as in the above photo. It was modified by BR in the mid 1980s to a track inspection coach - this is when it got the recessed side windows. Serco further modified it in 2001 when a generator set was installed. The two front windows do not automatically mean this is DB999508 as DB999506 and DB999509 are the same design.

    I have a picture of this vehicle taken on 21/3/84 at Exeter St.Davids, it is definitely DB999508. I'll send the picture in to confirm it.

    Hi all,

    does anybody have a drawing/sketch of the internal layout for this vehicle - as built, as I am giving serious thoughtto modelling it in O Gauge.
