MBS - 'Mini Buffet' Car%


In 1966/1968, three cariages were converted to 'Mini-Buffet' service.

This was to provide some refreshment services on long haul country trains.

The class given was 'MBS' and the cars were numbered 1,2 and 3.

The cars were converted from _BS_ carriages.

In 1983, one car reverted to BS; the other two were modified to BRS.
