British Railways Mark 1 and Mark 2 Coaching Stock

£35.00

Hugh Longworth's two books British Railways Pre-Nationalisation Coacking Stock Vol. 1 GWR & LNER and British Railways Pre-Nationalisation Coacking Stock Vol. 2 SR & LMS, published last year, were preceeded by this book, albeit in an earlier edition which has been updated.

The subject here is the coaches built by and for BR during its existence of the Mark 1 and Mark 2 designs, including sleepers, and restaurant and buffet cars (Mark 1 only) as well as ordinary coaches. Plus Departmental vehicles, Car carrying stock, and more, including typival mainline coaching formations, especially useful for modellers.

The format of this book is the same as the two above, with small outlines of each coach and its layout, coach numbers for each series etc. Compared with the other two books, this one seems to have a fair few more photographs, both B& W and colour.
