Metropolitan Bogie coaches (1898)
Motor brake third (BTH version)
With increased demand the Metropolitan Railway introduced new bogie coaches, based on the upgraded Jubilee coaches. With improved fittings they were popular, and it was not long before the Met started the conversion over to electric propulsion,initially with separate locos, then converting some brake thirds to motor coaches. Some all seconds/thirds were also converted into driving trailers.
Eventually all the brake coaches were either converted into motor coaches(2 variations) or all thirds.
With new trains being introduced their days were numbered and most were withdrawn in 1920s/30s.
Six coaches were converted back to steam haulage for 2 pushpull sets to run on the Chesham branch. These survived up till 1960 electrification, and 4 are now on the Bluebell Railway(subsequent restored/converted back into older style), and one trailer is prserved at LT museum.
