Pre-Grouping carriages? They must be out of the ark – not so – you might well have seen them, once you appreciate that the last of these veterans departed from British Railways service during the 1960s. The two principal East Coast royal saloons lasted even longer, into the 1970s. But there was nothing to compare with the original condition of the GNR and ECJS carriages, in their splendid varnished teak panels and elaborate lining-out and coats-of-arms. The attempt has been made to include details of carriage workings and to identify from photographs a number of the carriages marshalled in trains during their heyday or later. Equally, there are many photographs reproduced of the carriages in their last days.

A5 format, 224 pages.
