I would like to open this topic because i believe that are the most beautiful coaches of SPAP but unfortunately i don't know their numbers or their story, in order to give the proper name to the topic.

As I can remember,these carriages came to Greece from Italy in 1951-1952.They appeared in both Thessaly and Peloponnese networks until about 1990.They can be seen in Tripolis Dialogi,Kalamata,Enotiki,Dasolofos,Aerino(?),Velestino(?) and in other parts of the metre gauge networks.
Two of them remaining in good condition INSIDE Kalamata Depot;they were used with Δα 7108 in museum trains.

Ok.The only thing I know is that some of them were converted to administration carriages,post wagons etc.As I saw in some photos,the inside was a typical one; wooden seats, iron body with wood and propably no toilets.

http://ek-kinisi.blogspot.gr/2014/03/blog-post_25.html has very nice photos from these carriages and their inside.


Inside Kalamata Depot.If you look at the row of the old carriages,the first car right is the Πολεμιστής, a 1924 Σ.Α. first class carriage, rebuilt for use with the Δα 7108
