Office coaches

Hi All.


Could someone  explain what office coaches are used for,It seems odd to to be parked up in a siding working in an old coach when you could be in nice warm office.



They were not always parked up in a siding but instead as part of the consist of a train. This was usually the practice with seasonal traffic, the classic example was the soft fruit traffic on the Wisbeach and Upwell where a passenger rated parcels van was attached to the train as an office. It would have been uneconomic to build an office that would be required only for a couple of weeks each year.
