I found another photo of a very similar coach:
http://www.polier.ch/Fotoarchiv/W/WerderR/37/37N-37R/37O-015.jpg
Different livery and the WC seems to have been removed, but otherwise
it seems to match.
X 30 85 97-00 211-6
ex WR 50 85 88-33 000-3
ex WR 10001
ex Br4ü 10001
ex Cr4ü 10001, SWS 1937

So this was the only one directly delivered as buffet car.

Four of the five buffet cars were rebuilt for the substations, first numbered 30 85 97-00 209-212, then renumbered 80 85 9803 202-205

17 more were later added as direct conversions from B 29-33 to Xas. Finally they looked like the former buffet cars. so you may still find many photos of "FUW" = Fahrbare Unterwerke, among them my photo from 2007 that I published on Wiki-commons.

This was probably Xas 80 85 9803 208-0 and at the left transformer wagon Xaa 80 85 9403 108-6.

Today only the transformer wagons remain, control gear is now in containers. Thus, Xas 80 85 9803 206-223 have vanished.
