By 1934, the Southern Region recognised that the short 48′ ex-LSWR stock used to be in need of a few major attention as it used to be nearing the end of its working life. Much of it used to be built on wooden underframes, while some used to be still gas lit and so a programme of refurbishment used to be proposed and undertaken under Works Order (HOO No.) L801 of March 1934 and Works Order (HOO No.) L852A of March 1935. The 58′ stock to diagrams 99 and 418 were created in 1935/1936 at Lancing Works, by taking the 48′ Composite body, cutting it and fitting to a 58′ Maunsell underframe. When it comes to the Brakes, a 10′ guards van used to be grafted to one end, these were steel panelled, which did not somewhat match the finish of the remainder of the wooden panelled bodywork. The composites (to diagram 31) differ, in that the original 48′ body used to be cut into two sections and mounted at each and every end of the underframe, with a 10′ section being inserted comprising a single compartment, with two lavatories (side by side). The defining feature of most of these ‘new’ vehicles used to be the triangular section weatherboard that ran the length of the body, disguising the sign up for (the 48′ body being narrower than the 58′ underframe). This model represents Diagram 98, 58′ 6 Compartment Lavatory Third
