SAR Sheathed Combine (Side B)         
These sheathed wooden commuter coaches disappeared from South African rails during the 1960s and 1970's, gradually getting replaced by all metal coaches with driver controlled sliding doors. This coach started life as a first, second and third class composite baggage-van, one of two built in 1941. Its interior layout is, from left, a baggage compartment with two double doors on each side, a first class compartment, a second class compartment, toilets on both sides of a short passage with an interconnecting door to a third class compartment. At some stage the second class compartment was reclassified to first class and the coach type was changed from V-46-C to Y-10-C. .....oo....oo.....
