BR, Mk1 Coach First Open, W9353, Blue & Grey Livery - Era 7
Item code: R4778
The Mark 1 coach was intended to be the standard carriage design for use across all of the British Railways’ lines on the network, incorporating the best features of the SR’s, GWR’s, LMS’s and LNER’s designs. It was also designed to be much stronger than previous coaching stock, to provide better protection for passengers in the event of an accident. As a generalisation, Mk.1 coaches were built in two batches: the early vehicles (1951–60) and the 'Commonwealth' stock (from the type of bogie used) from 1961 onwards.
