Mainline Set

The Thirties main line set will be restored to British Railways Crimson and Cream.

The M&GN Society has a varied and interesting set of corridor bogie coaches dating between 1907 and 1950. These vehicles represent the golden age of rail travel of the Edwardian era, up to the late 1930s. The majority of these vehicles were finished in varnish teak but will now display different time period liveries. The LNER used pioneering Art-Deco interiors which still look modern by today's standards.

Our 1907 GER BTK brake third will be restored with a disabled compartment by using half of the large luggage area, the exterior will be varnished teak livery. This will join the Quad set to give disabled access to this set.

Many of our vehicles survived scrapping because they were used in departmental service during the post-war British Railways period. After they became life expired in the late 1970s, many were purchased by newly formed preservation societys, such as the M&GN Society.
