I have read here:
that "After 1959 four and six wheeled stock was banned from passenger trains".
Yet I have a 1964 Train Marshalling document that states the Glasgow - Newhaven boat train used 12 CCTs for carriage of motor vehicles. A similar number are listed for the York - Inverness sleeper/motorail I am assuming that the former used BR CCT stock, whilst I am aware that the York - Inverness service using LNER CCTs. at least initially, due to weight restrictions north of Perth.
I've also seen a number of photographs from the 1980's showing a single CCT in a Fort William sleeper service.
So, I suppose the question is: is the statement above completely incorrect, or is it correct but with some kind of caveat?
