WANTED - EMU CIG UNIT BUFFET TABLES AND GENERAL PARTS
Buffet tables (not mini tables) and general parts for BR(S) electric multiple unit, Class 421/3, 4CIG 1753. Although these units were designed on the BR MK1 body shell, there are so many varieties of interior fittings amongst the carriage families. I managed to rescue many fittings when the rest of the class went for scrap during 2004/5, however, the units were progressively run down in terms of maintenance from Connex days. Hence some fixtures and fittings were just not available.
And if an actual CIG buffet coach was requiring a home...

We're not particularly fussy on design - that is if there was much variation, although we suspect from what's left that they are something like this from the VCT's GCR carriage: http://www.vintagecarriagestrust.org/msl4.htm Or on the Bluebell's Met, etc: http://www.bluebell-railway.co.uk/bluebell/cw_news/cwn- pic/luggage_2apr05_0020h.jpg
