Even if you could get the numbers off it for now would be brilliant.

dont know if its genuine or not..
Thanks for your details. Also sent a PM. As for the red one you linked, it's been for sale on and off for about a year. Looks genuine but a bit of a dog.

Yep, the parts book says they were optional on the 1988 A9Y cars Marty, and to bear that out these cars had a different part numbered rear seat frame to any of the other wagons.

Item #43 (Seats Rear) on the PBS for the 1988 cars says "CAL".
I doubt yours would have had it being 1987 unless HDT welded some brackets in perhaps.
Only 198 more Calais Wagons to go to complete the set !
