Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Blackpool Club car no. 47

LYR 47 Blackpool Club Car was built in 1912 for the exclusive use of businessmen commuting between Blackpool and Manchester. After being in use as a cricket pavilion in Derbyshire, a full restoration was completed by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Trust at the KWVR and is an excellent example of an executive saloon, complete with real leather seating and a handcrafted interior. Perfect for that very special occasion.

The centenary of Club Carriage 47 was commemorated on October 17, 2012, with the unveiling of plaques by HRH Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.  The plaques are now fixed to the top interior panels of 47’s doors.

These coaches, being over 100 years old, are not used on regular service trains but do see occasional use on Vintage Train Sundays and other special occasions. When not in use they are normally stored in Oxenhope Exhibition Shed.

It is the perfect luxury venue for parties of 40 or less. Enjoy plush, luxurious surroundings on your special day as important executives and businessmen did many years ago.
