9103 Collett nondescript saloon

9103

Collett saloon unclassed. Built in 1929. Purchased in 1972 from Danygraig. The last of the private hire saloons, it ended its days as part of the Westward Television train. When purchased, it was full of broken television sets. Identical in layout to 9369, it has a more modern bodyshell. It was launched into service on the SVR in September 2013 after a long period of restoration and is now in regular traffic. Read a short history of 9103.

For the story of the restoration work, please see the 9103 restoration page.

Further reading: Great Western Railway Journal No3 Summer 1992 (Wild Swan), has an article by John Lewis on sister coach 9109. There are also interior shots of 9105 in 1958 in GWRJ No31 Summer 1999.
