LMS 9 Compartment Third Class Carriage

These two LMS 9 Compartment coaches are the last of their type in preservation.

Of modern construction techniques with steel body sides, the Railway has the only examples of a type of LMS coach designed by Sir William Stanier for local and suburban work around the LMS system. These 2 coaches, both built at the Wolverton Works in Buckinghamshire, are out of traffic and not on public view tucked away out of sight at Oxenhope pending restoration at some time in the future.

Proposals have been put forward to have this pair joined by a Driving Trailer from the National Collection to form an authentic Push and Pull train of the type that was seen for many years at work on the Worth Valley branch. However this proposal is only in its infancy and would take many years to complete.
