The ACME baggage coach I'm using is either 50234, 50235, 50243 or 50244. http://www.tecnomodel-treni.it/dettagli.php?id=26002 - just different colours on the same model. There is major conversion work to be done - half of each side has to be cut out and repositioned but it's far from impossible and I do very much like the Breda coaches, so we could have a green one 'in service' as well as the yellow breakdown train car. The other yellow coach can be done using one of the ACME 1st/2nd coaches - 50227 is the OSE version.

Tim,
Don't be in a hurry to cut up the Acme model. We might have only 32 members in this forum but there are 100s of guest visitors every day browsing our pictures. Mr Acme is probably watching right now and he is considering how soon to produce it.

That would be a nice thought - perhaps we should send him all our photos with a few subtle hints?

I do not have much but whatever I have Tim, I share in this forum. For additional info Mr Acme might have to approach one of the numerous treasure troves that reside in Greece. It happened before with the green OSE carriages so it might happen again with the baggage car. We must live in hope. :)

christo.

Well, if you think it's worth contacting him about it then I'll contribute all my photos for a start.

OK, do you know of any others like it apart from the yellow one? I'm not sure how many were built.
