GWR Articulated mainline suburban coach.
third class coach
The GWR built 3 sets of 6 articulated Mainline and City(ie Commuter) coaches. One set was fully articulated, the other 2 were made up of two 3 coach articulated sets. Each 3 car set was made up of one third brake, one third and one composite. For the 6 coach set the composite was also articulated. Thus 3 types of body, but 4 types of complete coach.
Bogies were 7ft on ends and 8ft 6in on articulated sections.
The coaches were built in the 20s and survived till about 1960.
