Mostyn Coaching Stock Formations

As well as information from enthusiasts' observations made in 1977, the document on which the coaching stock formations on Mostyn are based is the British Railways LMR Passenger Train Marshalling Circular for 2nd May 1977 to 7th May 1978

We were lucky that a copy of this was loaned to BMRG member David Goodwin by Bill Rear some 20 years ago when the relevant sections for the North Wales Coast were typed up for future reference. Along with the observations from 1977, this data is used as the basis for the three bigger Mk1 coach rakes used on Mostyn as well as for the planned Mk2 and Mk3 rakes.

If you click here, BMRG present a ‘North Wales Coast’ version of the Coaching Stock Marshalling Circular, formatted in the style of the original document.

Although the LMR Marshalling Circular has been followed as faithfully as possible we acknowledge that mistakes may exist, and this is certainly the case where paper additions to the original document meant that other earlier data were obscured. Where some of the obscured data were recorded in the notes made in the mid-90s, this is shown in red.

Addendum - Since this information was first added to the BMRG website, the BR Passenger Train Marshalling Circular described above, along with a second copy, is now in the possession of Robert Carroll.  Robert has a yahoo group called BRCoachingStock dedicated to all things related to 'British Railways operated coaching stock'; he and other members of the group have spent time and effort collecting and creating elecronic copies from these Marshalling Circulars, including those relevant to 1977.  Readers are well advised to join this group if they are interested in the history and operation of BR coaching stock.
