More information


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).

Possibly the most widely used of the 1951 designs for third class accommodation, this one had the official name of “Parentheses”.
