Details

BR's Mark 2 coaches were a remarkable link between the steam age railway, the birth of Inter City in 1966 and the successful development of that business - especially through the 1980s - to the emergence since 1984 of the privatised railway. Over 400 were thoroughly modernised to serve the privatised companies and took the operation of Mark 2s through into the new century. The author consulted official BR records not in the public domain, and interviewed engineers and operators who worked with the Mark 2s throughout their lives. Of especial interest is the full story behind the evolution of the prototype Mark 2 built at Swindon Works in the early 1960s. Profusely illustrated with photographs and drawings showing Mark 2s at all stages of their lives, as well as their construction and interior details which makes the book of particular interest to railway modellers. Originally published in 1999 and now reprinted to meet ongoing demand.
