LNWR Royal Train carriage

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 21st November 2011 by Liam Physick

Here we see one of the two coaches, numbered 800 and 801, built by the London and North Western Railway at Wolverton works in Buckinghamshire in 1903 for the purposes of carrying King Edward VII (No. 800) and Queen Alexandra (No. 801). When the LNWR was taken over by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway, the Royal Train coaches retained their LNWR livery and numbering but were repainted with LMS lettering. They remained in service until 1947, and are now in the National Railway Museum. It is unclear whether the one depicted here is 800 or 801
