365. KHL839
West Riding Guy Arab IV 442, KHL839, with a Roe lowbridge body. A message has highlighted the fact, not readily observed, that the lower saloon windows were deeper on the nearside than the offside due to the sunken side gangway. From this angle it is possible to see how this discontinuity was incorporated into the lines of the body. The central cream band can be seen to be noticeably narrower on the nearside than on the rear (and round to the offside), the step in height being lost around the rear door opening.
