British Railways Mark 1 Compartment Coach

The 9 compartment compartment coach was the standard commuter coach into and out of cities.

For the mass transport of workers in and out of our cities in the rush hour, the railway companies had used high density compartment coaches with no connection between each coaches. At Nationalisation a standard design was established with 9 compartments and seating for 108, although they carried many more than this when standing is taken into consideration. The Railway has one such coach which is in regular use on service trains.

This coach manufactured in 1954 finished its working career on Kings Cross inner suburban services.
