Ex GCR Baggage Composite Coach
Baggage Composite originally built in 1903/4/5 for London Extension Expresses. Later converted for pushpull servce in manchester area, surviving into 1950s.
The GCR introduced steam railmotors in 1904. By 1922, their unpopularity led to them being withdrawn, and the coach parts were converted into trailers. By1931 they wre paired with ex LDECR 6 wheel coaches and in 1933 these were replaced with ex London suburban coaches, converted from all 1st class to composites with a brake compartment replacing one end compartment.
The railmotor trailers were converted into pushpull coaches and used with the same ex London suburban coach conversion as well as a clerestory baggage composite coach.
Ex GCR C13 4-4-2T locos were adapted for pushpull and used with these coaches in South Manchester area up till end of 1950s.
