Coaching stock formations on Scarborough & Whitby line


Recommended Posts

I would be very grateful for any information regarding coaching stock formations used on the Scarborough and Whitby Railway during its life 1885 - 1965. Specific vehicle numbers not critical, but would be nice.

 

Thanks in advance

From the summer 1954 Carriage Working Book, the basic sets were BT-CL-BT or BT-CL-T-BT with a further T as a timetabled strengthener during July, August and early September.

DMUs from 1958?

I think I have a 1930's carriage working book somewhere, I'll have a look for it but I doubt they'll be much different.

Both books are from NERA http://www.ner.org.uk/assets/NERA Book & Publications - Combined List 22nd March 2019.pdf

Thanks, Stuart. Much appreciated. Presumably Gresley stock and then some Thompsons in later years?

 

Trying to identify coaching stock from most photos of workings that I have seen isn't usually easy...
