Moquettes for vintage railway carriages - Pullman Cars

Car 64 - Third Class

Third/Second class Pullman Moquette This Third Class Pullman Moquette is the one which has been in Car 64 for several decades. We need to renew it, and are considering getting this pattern reproduced.

If anyone has any better suggestions, I'd be interested in hearing from them.

If anyone has already had some third class moquette reproduced and could supply us with this or another suitable pattern, or is interested in joining us in a joint order to reduce costs, please give Tony Funnell, Bluebell Railway C&W Works Manager, a ring on 01825 790374 during working hours.

This moquette was also used in the 1951 Golden Arrow refurbishment of Car 35, which was re-modelled as Second Class, as seen in Plate 148 of Haresnape's Pullman book.


Pegasus - Trianon Bar

Pegasus Pullman Moquette This sample, obtained from Eastleigh, would appear, from Haresnape's Pullman book plate 142 to be the moquette used to trim the bar perch-seats in the 1951 Golden Arrow car Pegasus.

Unknown

Unknown Pullman Moquette This sample is representative of a part-roll of moquette in our possession, believed to have been of Pullman origin. If anyone has information about this moquette, I'd be very interested to learn more.

BR First Class - used in Brighton Belle, 1968

charcoal moquette Plate 196 of Haresnape's Pullman book shows that this BR First-class Charcoal Check, normally associated with Mk.1 coaches, was also used in the 1968 refurbishment of Brighton Belle car Audrey.
