Sorry, meant to reply earlier.


It's CDRJC Nos. 35 - 38, four "lavatory composites" built by R W Pickering & Co. in 1905. The last survivor, 38, was sadly scrapped in 1957. These were probably the most elegant coaches to run on the system, apart from six-wheel saloon No. 1, which of course now resides in Cultra. They were 36 feet long, weighed 12 tins, and carried just ten trust class and twelve third class passengers.


35 and 36 were withdrawn and scrapped in 1952, but 37 had been sold off as a "hut" in 1949. Are its remains still lurking in some hedge up there?


In the frontispiece of E M Patterson's excellent book on the CDR, one of them is depicted in the frontispiece; surely the quintessential Donegal picture of all time.
