a smart looking coach i would like to model it in oo guage can anyone tell me what type of coach the donor was ?

Looking at the nice broadside shot of it in Railtrack yellow I am going to make an educated guess that the donor coach was a BSK, and it looks as if a window has been put in to the area where one set of the double doors used to be, and THE GUARDS DOOR has been plated over.
I hope that this is of help to you.

A search using that helpful little box in the top right of your screen will tell you exactly what number this coach was originally.......!! But yes a BSK sounds about right.

This coach is still known as MENTOR even though the name is not carried on the vehicle.

MENTOR was converted at Swindon in 1973 from BSK No:W34616 which was built in 1955. It was called MENTOR which was an acronym for 'Mobile Electrical Network Testing, Observation and Recording'.
