I photographed this vehicle on 31st July 1984 at Glenwhilly on the GSWR line from Ayr to Stranraer. It was the only vehicle in the train, drawn by 27042. The livery was similar to that in the Euston view above, but the lettering was in a different typeface. An interesting vehicle, and any further information would be appreciated, especially a drawing.

A lot of departmental stock drawings are available (at a small cost) from Dave Hulls
He also has a wide selection of many other railway vehicles too.

The gap between left hand bogie and battery box on the underframe at one time carried a railbus engine to power all the onboard gubbins, seperate from any eth supply, can't clearly make the engine out in this pic, anyone have more info?

If you look at some of the other pictures (especially the B&W shot of the coach "as new"), next to the bogie you can just make out in the blur a DMU style radiator, which would have been part of the generator set you're mentioning.

In this pic: http://1980sbrcoachingstockbyjohnlacy.fotopic.net/p63991791.html the smoke possibly evidence showing the engine in use, or was the exhaust somewhere at roof level? Never seen it.
