By the early 1990s the development of Britain’s road infrastructure and an improvement in the reliability of cars meant that demand for motorail had fallen drastically. With motorail making significant losses the privatisation of BR saw all services end in 1995. First Great Western briefly reintroduced an overnight motorail service from London Paddington to Penzance in 1999 however this too ended in 2005. Motorail was operated using a variety of different rolling stock including flat wagons known as Carflats. These simple wagons featured a flat surface with small ramps at either end which would fold down to allow cars to be driven along the train.
