MK2 coach info.


Recommended Posts

Looking for information on the MK2 s that were used in the Edinburgh - Glasgow push pull sets that were air braked and fitted with disc brakes.

 

I am planning on doing one that ended up in Trans-Pennine livery so any pic would be great.

 

Cheers Peter.

From this thread:

https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/57319-class-27-push-pulls-1970s/

 

1979 platform 5 coaching stock book (with a DBSO on cover!) has:

 

TSO

mk2, lot no. 30751, 1965-7 : 5126, 5130/4/7, 5142/4/6/7, 5152/3, 5160/9, 5176, 5182/7/9, 5190/2/5/7, 5202

mk2a, lot no. 30787, 1968 : 5391/2/5

 

BSO

mk2, lot no. 30757, 1966 : 9387, 9395/7, 9400/3, 9411/2

 

FK

mk2, lot no. 30749, 1964-5 : 13411/5/6, 13423/4/7, 13431

 

(these coaches are all noted as being disc braked and blue-star push and pull fitted)

 

DBSO

mk2f, lot no. 30861, 1974

only the first 3 are showing as converted, but in the BSO listings there are the others earmarked for conversion. only states air brakes and B4 bogies and "for push and pull systems using train lighting cable"

 

the book states the listings are as at 18/06/1979

I think that there are at least a couple of other threads about the ScR push-pulls (both cl. 27 and 47 flavoured) with lots of good info but the ones above have the most about the coaches.

Of the 15 ab Mk2z TSO which were allocated to Transpennine services at NL, YC or HT only 5147, 5160 and 5192 seem to have received Provincial livery
