An early, loop pile version of “Trojan” first saw the light of day in 1958, when it was used in the Open Saloons of the new electric multiple unit trains which were being built for the lines from London to the Kent Coast.
The design later evolved into the textured pile version which we offer, and in that form it was widely used in all standard class passenger accommodation throughout the “blue & grey” era of British Rail.
N.B. This design has the pattern running across the width of the roll.
