History: F.65 was built as the amalgamation of 4-wheeled coaches B.22 and C.7 on a bogied chassis. The coach ran until 1973, whereupon the body was scrapped for rebuilding as a ballast hopper. The work was completed in 1983, being utilised on track relaying and ballasting programmes on both the IOMR and the Manx Electric.
