Thanks for this. I’m intent on creating one of the coaches in its 1969-87 condition. The number I have is 50 63 20-33 880-9
The check digit is wrong, it should be 50 63 20-33 880-5

This number is correct for 1969-91. August 1987 the coach came back with rubber connections and the new livery. This coach was among the first EW I to get the (old) blue/cream livery in order to be used with ABDe 4/8 and Bt. It was rare to see them somewhere else, but it could happen after about 1982.

Second coach in the same livery 1969-87 was 50 63 20-33 881-3. A black and white photo of this coach can be found in:
