This class is one of the most interesting SEK / OSE classes and also one of my favourite ones. :mrgreen:


They were actually built by various German builders around 1920 - 193X as wood - covered coaches, some of them with 3 axles and the rest with 2 axles, with different - random numbers and classes. Later, in 1954 - 1957 they were rebuilt (of course in Germany) to the known - current form which was called '' B3yg '' (There were also '' AB3yg '' - A and B class and '' BD3yg '' - B class + luggage compartment) and D.B. classified them as 85801 - 90537 (4737 cars !). They were also called ''CONVERT'' due to their rebuilding.

S.E.K. bought 50 of them in 1966, which arrived to Greece around September 1966. They were classified as Βρπτ 401 - 450 and later 50 73 23-20 321 - 370, always been used in pairs (so only even numbers) mostly due to rolling reasons.

Finally in the 1980s, when some of the older maintenance cars had srarted to be ... useless (damaged, old construction e.t.c.), some of these '' B3yg '' were converted again, this time to maintenance car, mostly for northern Greece.

Some of them still exist in various forms ... mostly withdrawn maintenance, and other cars with various ex- uses, still most of the times in pairs.

Here is one of the few that I repainted and lettered back in 2008. I made abour 8 pieces,4 for me and the others for friends. All were Roco but this one is a Fleischmann. The decals are from Stefanos Goulakos. I still have 2 from Roco which I would like to repaint to SEK livery and lettering.

Very nice job Andreas - I have a set of Goulakos' transfers, must do something with them. What shade of green did you use?

The Germans referred to these coaches as 'Umbau' - rebuilds. I rather like them too, here are some at Rentis in 2005. This pair are 23 20 355-8 and 23-20 368-1

OK, thanks. The shade of green on these seems to vary quite a bit, some look very dark. I look forward to seeing a SEK pair. I'll be doing two pairs with the 'biscuit' logo and the later one, I also have a couple of odd ones to do as works vehicles. I have photos of these at Lianokladi which I'll post in the works vehicles thread.
