1521 battery-baggage coach


available from 1957 until 1960/62. Until which year the battery coach was available is not really specified - at least until 1960 - most probably until the first 1013 / 1550 were issued in 1962

baggage car, green, all tin. Roof either light or dark grey. 

The difference to the normal superstructure concerns the recesses (to have the cables pass through towards the loco) punched into the side wall of each wagon - there are two on each side. Another hole is punched in to the "destination sign" on each side - to fix the battery compartment by means of two rivets.

Another method of fixing the battery box was achieved by 2 fishplates each side of the coach besides the "destination sign"
