Cotton Belt B30-7's have only minor detail differences from the SP units. The only things I can see to watch for are:

  • Whether the unit has a roof mounted, or frame mounted bell,
  • If the unit still has the 'L' shaped engineers window,
  • If the unit has an Airconditioner fitted,
  • And depending on your timeframe - how many lights it still has, and is a Beacon fitted.
