PULLMAN CARS

The Pullman Car Co. Ltd. (formerly Pullman Co. Ltd.) was an independent company until Nationalisation in 1963, although latterly B.T.C. held a controlling interest. After 1915 each Pullman car received a schedule number, distinct from the running (car) number (First Class cars, and non-supplement dining cars in Scotland were named). Only rarely except in the case of 1960-built series (Second Class cars 332-53 of schedules 311-54) did the schedule and car numbers coincide.

Contemporary records were destroyed by a wartime bomb in 1940, and hence some details have been lost. This compilation, showing those cars allocated schedule numbers after 1915, is based mainly on the publications of the late B Haresnape and R Kidner. In these lists, ‘in service’ refers to the time in Pullman Car Co (later BTC) stock. Temporary retitling of cars is omitted. Later renamings are generally not listed separately. The car types are distinguished with successive modifications (in brackets) as follows:

Bar: Bar Car

BP:  Parlour Car with luggage area including a guard’s seat

D: Non-supplement dining car in Scotland

GP: Parlour Car with guard’s vestibule (SR)

K: Parlour Car with kitchen

MBP: Brake Parlour with driving compartment

OBS: Observation Parlour Car

P: Parlour Car

RC: Restaurant Car/Buffet Car

6: six-wheeled bogies

Other notes: R: rebuilt,

‘CR to LMS’:  used on the Caledonian Railway and then the LMS, absorbed into LMS stock in 1933

HCT: ‘Hastings Car Train’ cars

NB: Narrow-bodied stock for Tonbridge-Hastings line

RBP: stand-by replacement car for Blue Pullman set

‘SR 6-car unit’: SR electric 6-Cit and 6-Pul sets

‘to LNER stock’: used on the LNER then purchased by that company

Where appropriate, if no B.R. region is shown in the notes on usage, it is probable in most cases that the car in question remained in use in the pre-nationalisation railway district.
