GWR, 9516 ex236
The history of diners were very complex. All but 235 were rebuilt as composites without lavs in the 1900s.   All condemned by 1931 except 9502 & 9516 which were converted to Cafe Cars, but only for a few years.

Note: After 1907 first class coaches had 8000 added to their number.

Under Construction.  This project is definitely work in progress. If you would like to receive an email when I update these pages please contact me through the Exchange Sidings.
