Midland luggage van used on Tramore line

Ladies & Gentlemen; a query.

For many years, the Waterford & Tramore line had an elderly ex-MGWR four-wheeled luggage van, which they used to carry prams and larger luggage on the W & T, as from early GSR days the carriages where possible had extra seats crammed in, leaving little room for such things. When the railcars took over in the early 1950s, even they had bus seats.

This van was retained until the end, being hauled by railcars and push-shunted at each end by the crew.

Does anyone know of the whereabouts of any decent pictures of this thing? I have seen pics, but not really good ones to show it in detail.
