jhb171achill Posted December 12, 2015 Share Posted December 12, 2015 Railwaymen in the past never referred to six wheeled coaches as "six-wheelers" as we mere nippers do; they were "thirty foots". He area couple of interesting ones, showing that internal layouts of such vehicles were not always plain compartments. To refer to a vehicle as a "corridor" coach when the actual corridor was entirely internal, and did not include gangways into the next coach, was not unusual. The Isle of Man Railway always referred to its 1905-built saloons as "the Corridors", as you could walk right through them, but not to the next coach. Ironically, only in the past few years they have actually put gangways on them for the first time for their modern dining train... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
