    From the buffers, it looks like a former "Manta" or "Marlin" type underframe ex-EMU. These conversions were mostly for rail carriers, but a few became crane runners. This wagon could be one of those.

    Indeed so.

    ex 6-Pan EMU TSK 10027. Was runner for 81342 at Hither Green PAD at the time of the 5th ed of the bible. Earlier base for them ( quoted in the Lineside 82/83 DS publication) was New Cross Gate PAD.

    Meant to add - 'quite presentable for 73 years old'
