Carriage Working

A range of six carriage rosters is now produced. Three cover the ECML for 1932, 1950 and 1958-59 (NEW) with two North-East area books for 1932 and 1954 covering local NE and inter-regional workings. An Eastern Region GN main line roster for the summer of 1956 shows services from Kings Cross to Yorkshire destinations such as Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate, York and Hull. These books show the formation and working of coaching stock; the ‘set’ formations usually working a number of trains over one or more days.
