LB&SCR Carriages Volume 2:

Four- and Six-wheeled Saloons, Vans and Restorations

This new book is the second of two volumes intended to complete the coverage of LB&SCR carriages and passenger-rated vans. It describes the four- and six-wheeled saloon and passenger-rated vans, and also gives an account of the restoration of LB&SCR carriages at the Bluebell Railway. The aim is to provide a "design history" based on contemporary historical documents supplemented by practical knowledge gained through the study and restoration of surviving carriage bodies. The two volumes describe how carriage design developed, and how it followed new developments in train lighting, braking, communication and the social distinctions of the time. Both volumes are profusely illustrated with photographs and scale drawings, and are produced to the same high standard as this publisher's LSWR Carriages by Gordon Weddell. All royalties from the sale of these volumes are being donated to the Bluebell Stroudley Coach Fund.
