Early Railways Eras 1 & 2

From Rocket to 1920. Locomotives, trains, carriages and wagons from the Victorian and Edwardian period, eras 1 & 2.
The introduction of third class travel on the L&MR dates to April 1844, when the Board ordered new enclosed second class coaches to replace the older ‘blue boxes’, which were then downgraded to third class. The first of the L&MR third class train services ran in October 1844, departing from Manchester at 06:30 and from Liverpool at 18:30.

This four wheeled coach is a representation of the many which served on the Great Northern Railway (GNR) in the late 19th and early 20th century. Four wheeled coaches proved especially good at branch line work where their small size enabled the traversing of tight radius curves, whilst lower passenger numbers meant their small size was more acceptable and enabled trains to be hauled by smaller engines.

This GNR coach is modelled as having step boards to enable access at stations with low platforms and gas lighting.

In 1913 the first of these new design vans was built as a trial vehicle using the new SECR standard steel underframe designed by C&W engineer Lionel Lynes and debuting the distinctive tri-arc roof body which was to become a feature of Southern Railway covered wagons.
The Maunsell/Lynes underframe was used for the entire planned range of SECR standard wagons, being common with the 5 and 7 plank open wagons, timber bolster trucks and the new design of engineers ballast wagons. This robust steel frame game all these wagons long working lives, with most reaching British Railways service and some lasting into the 1970s in engineering service.

The SECR standard design of engineering ballast wagon used the Maunsell/Lynes standard underframe design with a 2-plank drop-side body, initially with raised rounded ends, though later built wagons had straight 2-plank ends from new. The first wagons were built in 1919 the construction of 120 wagons was completed by the Southern Railway, replacing the eclectic mix of run-down wagons in use by the engineers with the new purpose-designed wagon. Most at least of the fleet passed into British Railways ownership, withdrawals starting as new BR wagons were built, though the last wagon lasted until 1971.

As travel time by railway was superior to that of road travel by coach, coach companies sought new ways to compete and the gentry often wished to take their own private coach with them. These low sided flat wagons were ideal for use as 'carriage trucks' conveying road-going vehicles and equipped with passenger train type buffers could be attached to regular trains.

The Maglight system is a new development by Hornby that provides lighting in coaches with minimum fuss and no excessive drag because power is provided on board the coach and not by a tension pick up on the axle. The Maglight system consists of an LCD strip, small button battery and a reed switch. Once installed the lights are switched on and off by just passing a ‘magnet wand’ over the coach roof. The small easily replaced button battery provides in excess of 200 hours of power making the Maglight system a simple but effective way of lighting coaches with the minimum of fuss. The new system is already fitted to many of the new six and four wheel coaches but for those who wish to retro fit the Maglight the installation is both simple and very effective. Maglight also allow the modeller to be selective as to which coach lights are on or off and without the need to install expensive decoders.

This 6 Wheeled Coach is a representation of the many which served on the London and South Western Railway (LSWR) in the late 19th and early 20th century.
