From the 1920s onwards the GWR used the term 'B set' to designated a formation of two coaches used principally for branch and local passenger services. 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.

Graham Farish N 374-641 BR MK 1 CCT BR Lined Maroon Weathered
New model announced 2015

The Covered Carriage Truck (CCT) is a wagon type dating back to the early days of railways when the gentry would take their horses and carriage with them by train. The designation was perpetuated to describe a long 4-wheel van with end doors and suitable for travel at passenger train speeds. These very flexible, the end doors permitted large items and road vehicles to be loaded with ease, while side doors allowed the vans to be used in general express parcels service.
British Railways built a sizable fleet of these 4-wheel CCT vans in the 1950s to replace the eclectic range of vehicles of pre-nationalisation and often pre-grouping origin with a standard design. BR CCTs could be found on many parcels services until the mid 1980s, when the 4-wheel vans were high on the hit-list for withdraw as BRs share of the mail and parcels business began to decline.

This model is painted in the British Railways maroon livery of the 1960s.
