|Description||:||These coaches are uploaded in support of train simulation, and MSTS in particular.
For sound the coaches require Jeff Ashton's UKSteamTrack - Part 1 - Bogie Coaches Enhanced Sound - UKTS File ID 2807.
Slip coaches were used on several railways before World War 1, and the LNWR operated some 15 slip coaches a day. They were attached to the rear of the train and detached by the attendant guard on approach to the station. Thus the main train continued onwards without stopping and the slip coach was brought to rest in the station by the guard applying the hand brake.
Examples of slip working was found on Euston-Liverpool, Euston-Wolverhampton, Euston-Crewe and several other services. (There was even a parcels van - not modelled here - which was slipped off of an ex-Euston early morning service.) These services were typically discontinued through World War 1, and very few reinstated afterwards. However the concept was only finally abandoned in the mid-1920s.
The coaches have been modelled using the following references:-
- L&NWR NON-CORRIDOR COACHES (1886-1923 excluding the 30ft 1in 6 wheelers) by Philip Millard and Ian Tattersall
- L&NWR 30ft 1in SIX-WHEELED CARRIAGES by Philip Millard
- LNWR CARRIAGES (A Concise History) by David Jenkinson
- A Register of WEST COAST JOINT STOCK by Richard Casserley and Philip Millard
- LNWR LIVERIES by Edward Talbot, Philip Millard, George Dow and Peter Davis
- LNWR COACH DIAGRAM BOOK 1915
There is one trainset folder and includes the following coaches :-
- LNWR Diagram D247 Composite Brake Lavatory (BCL)
- LNWR Diagram D248 Composite Brake Lavatory (BCL)
- LNWR Diagram D249 Composite Brake Lavatory (BCL)
- LNWR Diagram D250 Composite Brake Lavatory (BCL)
- LNWR Diagram D251 Composite Brake Lavatory (BCL)
- LNWR Diagram D221 Composite Brake Lavatory (BCL) which was a converted Diagram 249 without the Look Out on the roof
I have only included Chain versions, and no consists have been included. There should shortly be an MSTS route suitable to run these, although my own belief is that any stock can be run on any route, so to all intents and purposes the world's your oyster!!!!
The coaches are not exact models, but in my opinion are a good representation of these coaches circa 1910-1915, which is the date that I have based the numbering on. Where relevant I have modelled the coaches as Thirds, although they were originally built as Third, Second and Composite (Second and Third). Second class was phased out from about this time and hence my decision to only use Third.I have used the typical alpha denominations for defining the coaches, which again may not be truly prototypical.
The numbers on the enclosed coaches are from the 1910 renumbering - details are available from the above references. A number of these coaches lasted into LMS days, and some even into British Railways times.
