A number of 'B sets' were purpose built, comprising two identical brake composite coaches. These coaches contain compartments for first and third class passengers, plus space for the guard, passenger luggage, mail and parcels and were coupled with guards' vans at the outer ends of the train.This 2 coach pack from Dapol models replicates one of these short trains, which would often be hauled by one of the small GWR tank engines, including the 14xx class 0-4-2s, 57xx class panniers and 45xx class 2-6-2 prairies.

Southern Railway 3 coach set 394 formed of 2 brake third class coaches flanking a composite coach finished in Southern Railways Maunsell era green livery.The Southern formed most of its' passenger carriage fleet into sets which could be used as a complete train, or formed with other coach sets to make up a longer train. These self-contained portions could then split off to serve multiple destinations, so 3 coaches are ideal to represent a long-distance cross-country service on a small layout.
All of these coaches are Era 3 (pre-nationalisation) and pre-nationalisation coaches in the first British Railways liveries for Era 4 (British Railways 1948-1957). Details of the periods covered by the era numbers can be found here.
