Rapido Trains UK to produce all newly tooled GWR ‘B-Set’ coaches
One of the classic Great Western Railway branch trains was a pair of non-corridor Brake Composites - known as ‘B-Sets’ - hauled by a ‘Small Prairie’ 2-6-2T.
The first iteration of ‘B-set’ coaches was delivered in 1924 under diagram E116.
However, it wasn’t until 1930 when the largest diagram – E140 – were delivered.
These vehicles each sported a guard’s compartment, a single First Class compartment and five Third Class compartments. The coaches were close coupled in a fixed formation with the brake compartments on the outer ends.
