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 accommodation 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 preceding 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 first class buffet coach recreates a coach converted in the late 1980s to replace the Mk.1 buffet cars and still in service. Painted in the BR corporate blue and grey livery.Era 9 1995 onwards.
The Mk.3 DVT, Driving Van Trailer, was produced to allow shuttle type train working to be introduced on the West Coast mainline in the 1990s. The coach was equiped with a drivers cab to allow the driver to control a powerful electric locomotive at the rear of the train. This allows a train to be driven in either direction without needing to reposition the locomotive.
Network Rail use a DVT control trailer with several of the network measurment trains, avoiding the need for a second locomotive to be used.
