About this title


This is an authoritative and detailed history of the design, construction and utilization of the Mark 1 coaches, a model that may well be the most significant carriage type ever built in Britain. It first went into revenue service in 1951 and a revamped model was introduced in the 1980s. This book provides a through examination of every aspect of the Mark 1, from prototypes to sleeping cars, from the Leyland Coach to liveries and numbering, from the Royal cars to roof details. Illustrated throughout with black and white (and some color) photographs as well as detailed scale drawings. Fascinating reading for anyone interested in understanding the success of this design. Ten Appendices cover route restrictions, letter codes, design codes, type codes, maintenance, allocations, lot numbers, electric train heating, liveries, roof and under frame sketches, roof details and festival trains (clearly written with the modeler in mind!). With bibliography. 236 pages with index.
