SAR Blue Train Baggage Van, Side A         
On Set 751, the baggage van usually runs first in the string of carriages that make up the Blue Train when the conference carriage is attached and brings up the rear. The interior layout is, from the left, a baggage room, the conductor's cabin with periscopes and exit doors on both sides, and a baggage room with a toilet on the A side. In the 2017 Set 751 it was no. 1 in the train.
