Coaches - British Rail

Representing the BR Corporate & InterCity eras. 1965-1995. During the mid-1960s British Railways was looking for a 'new image'. The end of steam traction was in sight, the second generation high-horsepower diesel locomotives were being delivered and detail design for the modern mark 2 coaching stock was underway. Many innovative ideas were tried out in an experimental set of coaches, along with a new livery of blue with grey window bands, a new name, British Rail and the still familiar double arrows logo.
Twenty years later BRs' InterCity express passenger business unit was looking to refresh its image with a more dynamic livery, resulting in a very pleasing stripe livery which accentuated the length of coaches and impression of speed.
The Southern Railway 4-wheel parcels vans survived until the early 1980s, many receiving BR rail blue paint during overhauls.
Though many of these vans had by then been reduced to departmental duties some were still listed in the revenue service fleet and the departmental vans were often used for distributing BR stores through the network of daily parcels trains.

A new model of the early design of BR mak 2 coaches. These coaches featured semi-integral construction, providing a much stronger body structure than the separate underframe and body arrangeemnts used previously while delivering more usable internal space for passengers. Mk.2A was a revised design based on service experience of the initial Mk.2s and incorporating a number of new materials, including easily cleaned plastic surfaced panelling.

This model is of the Mk.2A second class brake coach painted in the Network South East livery of the late 1980s & early 90s.

New and detailed models of the BR air conditioned express passenger stock built from the early 1970s. BR was one of the first European railways to offer air conditioned accomodation as standard on principal services.

These models are of the Mk.2F coaches, the last of the Mk.2 series build (1973-1975) and almost identical to preceeding Mk.2E coaches (1972-73 build), the design changes relating primarily to the air conditioning plant. These two builds formed the backbone of the InterCity locomotive-hauled coach fleet during the 1970s and 80s.

This model of the second class tourist open plan seating (2+2 with tables) coach is painted in the InterCity red stripe livery.

A pack of two BR Mk.1 coaches finished in BR blue and grey livery and numbered in the departmental ADB series to match coaches used in the Doncaster works locomotive test train.

Works test train coaches were part of the engineers fleet, though often retaining passenger livery these coaches were not for passenger use but used as a load for controlled testing of overhauled locomotives. The interiors may be unchanged, stripped out or replaced with weights to provide a known load, a newly overhauled locomotives' performance could be checked with a series of controlled test runs before the loco was returned to service. An excellent excuse for an unusual locomotive to turn up 'on test'!
