Isle of Wight
(ex-SECR) 8½ compartment 3rd
£125.00 inc vat
The third vehicle of the 1910-11 batch of SECR trio 'A' sets was a six compartment 2nd/3rd class lavatory brake composite. As with the semi-saloon composites, the lavatories were removed for island service but in this instance, rather than create a saloon, the space was converted into a rather poky coupé or half-compartment. At the other end of the car the guard's van area was converted into two new compartments, the remodelled area steel sheeted externally.
There were a few withdrawals in 1959 but most of these coaches survived until the end of steam on the island.
