here are the pictures, all nicely boxed and that buffer beam on one won't be too big a job to sort. bogies are all boxed in original un-opened cartons

INFO.

For anyone unfamiliar with GWR carriage history, this GRS stock is diagram E147 and, although advertised as "B sets" not all the E147 series were formed into sets.

It is perfectly legitimate to run these singly and the numbers of the stock not arranged as sets were : 6207 to 6210; 6822/3/7/37/38/50.
Additionally, Nos. 6812 and 6820 were autotrailers, with a driving compartment in the van end. These "single" carriages did have full length buffers at both ends, so to be strictly accurate, you would need to replace the short "close-coupled" buffers at the inner end.

So, don't be deterred from buying this single carriage just because there is not another available.
