About the blog

For the past forty-odd years I have pursued an interest in the Railways of Germany however as the end of the line beckons, I have returned to the railway that has always run past my home - the Southern.

Coaches for Beaminster Road - 1

The Maunsell set of coaches is the Hornby lo-window three-car set consisting of two four compartment brake thirds and a composite corridor.

They were introduced, in 1926, to serve the West of England (WoE) services, with extra luggage space in anticipation of the needs of the passengers, however, they proved unpopular due to lack seating and were transferred to the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway for local services between Bath & Bournemouth.

 Set 392 on Masbury Summit S&DJR
