Completed March 1929 to Diagram G58, Lot 1400.
Collett saloon unclassed. Built in 1929. Purchased in 1972 from Danygraig. The last of the private hire saloons, it ended its days as part of the Westward Television train. When purchased, it was full of broken television sets. Identical in layout to 9369, it has a more modern bodyshell. It was launched into service on the SVR in September 2013 after a long period of restoration and is now in regular traffic. Read a short history of 9103.
For the story of the restoration work, please see the 9103 restoration page.
