NUMBERING OF COACHES

The coaching stock of the G.W.R., S.R. and L.M.S. were numbered in broad batches, irrespective of age or origin. 

  

L.M.S. COACH NUMBERING (after 1932/3)

 

The numbering was as follows:

1-299 Dining cars, etc.

300-799 Sleeping cars

800-999 Special saloons

 

L.M.S. GENERAL VESTIBULE CARRIAGES (1000-9999)

 

The characteristics of the periods as described by Essery and Jenkinson (1977) and annotated in the first column were as follows:

(I): from 1923, high waisted, wood-panelled

(II): from 1929, low waisted, with square windows, wood or steel-panelled

(III): from 1933, flush-clad steel, with rounded window corners

 

Other notes:

1-w/2-w: one/two windows per compartment

3-d/4-d: three/four passenger doors on corridor side

all door: (on compartment side)

flush: non-panelled in contrast to previous examples

porthole: circular toilet windows

compts: composite stock compartments are shown as first/third class

s: saloon (plus compartments in semi-open stock)

Shallow/deep vents refers to sliding window elements (the latter standard for later Period III stock).

The letters in the sixth column indicate diagrams with similar internal layout, although seating, etc, may vary.

The references to the toilet positions in the seventh column are:

TC: centrally placed in coach, TB: at brake end only, TA: at other end of brake coach,

TP: paired at one end of the FO or TO coach

Otherwise the toilets were placed at both ends of the passenger accommodation.

This list excludes articulated stock which were numbered separately.

NB When the allocations for corridor and vestibule stock were filled additional batches occupied series: 12750-13184 and 24500--27956

L.N.E.R. COACH NUMBERING

In 1923 the numbers of absorbed passenger stock were initially suffixed with letters.

LNER standard designs were numbered in a separate series from 10000.

Then, in 1925, the numbers were prefixed with numbers instead. The respective suffixes and prefixes were as follows:

East Coast Joint stock: J, 1

N.E.R.: Y, 2

N.B.R.: B, 3

G.N.: N, 4

G.C.: C, 5

G.E.R.: E, 6

G.N.S.R.: S, 7

The intention was to allocate numbers to new stock according to line usage and this was largely fulfilled. The M. & G.N. stock taken over in 1936 were placed in a new 8XXXX series.

 

In 1943 the stock was extensively renumbered according to type in new numerical ranges. Within each range numbers were applied in the order of areas:

North Eastern, Southern Scottish, Great Northern, Great Central, Great Eastern and Northern Scottish. The 10000 series was dispensed with.

However, some East Coast vehicles retained their existing numbers, while new vehicles were numbered in the series: 100-157, 1000-1998 with no particular internal order. The other major exception was that G.E. short vestibule carriages retained their numbers in the 6XXXX series.

 

As an example of the renumbering, 10019J (of 1924) became 1000 (from 1925), was later  transferred to general stock as 4462, then became 12039 from 1943. Such final numbers received an ‘E’ prefix in 1948 and then an (additional) suffix ‘E’ from 1951.

 

The new ranges for general stock and most catering vehicles were as follows:

Corridor coaches

Catering vehicles: 9000-9217

Composite brakes: 10000-10174

Firsts and first brakes: 11000-11189

Thirds: 12000-13985

Third brakes: 16000-16873

Composites: 18000-18741

 

Passenger brake and TPO vans: 70000-70767

 

Non-corridor carriages

Composite brakes: 80000-80421

Firsts and first brakes: 81000-81084

Thirds: 82000-82905

Third brakes: 86000-87333

Composites: 88000-88741

 

Throughout the period under consideration, new mainline East Coast stock were built and their older counterparts were displaced and ‘cascaded’ into general service and renumbered accordingly. The following tables provide a guide to the general service corridor stock as renumbered in 1943 and subsequently. 

 

L.N.E.R. VESTIBULE PASSENGER STOCK NUMBERED IN GENERAL SERIES

Italics indicate post-war (Thompson) stock

Unless otherwise stated all coaches were teak-bodied.

AS: all steel

D: end doors only to corridor side

G: general service stock

E: some general service vehicles were numbered previously with East Coast stock

* incomplete sequence owing to war damage, etc

SP: steel panelled

B: brake; O open; S: second class as built

The first column gives the diagram number.

The seventh column (s) shows number of compartments or of saloons (+ compartments).

Where coaches were built uniquely for a specific purpose, the express name is noted.
