4 BIG BUFFET CAR No 6933 FOR SALE
This coach is offered for sale on an as seen and where lying basis. It is a condition of sale that it be removed
from Isfield within two months of purchase. Assistance with loading will be provided and there is reasonable road access.
Open to reasonable offers (the sale is subject to VAT). Inspection by appointment.
This vehicle was used both statically and as hauled stock at Isfield but has been out of use for some six years. It is in need of a full overhaul. It was retired from static use due to the interior condition.
There is considerable decay. The usual mk1 rot along the lower body is present, the condition of the crash pillars is unknown. There are many leaks. All the windows are present but many have blown double glazing, much of the window timber is rotten.
All the seats are very worn and some have very serious water damage and mould. The floor is poor. The coach has been crudely fitted with 240V heating and 240/12V lighting. Most of the original kitchen is missing. The bar area retains the original shelves and drawers.
Underframe & bogies
The bogies now fitted are incorrect for the coach - they are commonwealth type and lack the correct brake gear for this coach. They are not a pair though all the wheel sets have usable tyres. Most of the rest of the brake gear is missing. The coach is fitted with a vacuum through pipe from when used with steam haulage in the past. The water heating boiler is still fitted underneath but will be removed before sale. There are no batteries. Originally the coach had fixed buckeyes each end - it has now been fitted with drop-head buckeyes and buffers at both ends but at one end it will be returned to a fixed buckeye as the drop-head and buffers are needed elsewhere.
