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.

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. First class of course!

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.
