Background:

This is one of the “Festival of Britain” group of designs, first introduced in 1951 for the new range of British Railways Standard coaches (later to be known as the “Mark 1” fleet). A mock up of two compartments, one first class, and one third class, were constructed in railway workshops and were displayed at the Festival exhibition site on the South Bank, near Waterloo station.

These mock-ups, one of which features the “Boomerang” design, still exist today in the National Railway Museum collection, although not currently on display.
