We have one other major LNWR artefact. Because the LNWR and the LBSCR both used Fox's 8' plate bogies, when we needed a 48' carriage underframe for our LBSCR bogie carriage, the solution was found by shortenning a redundant 50' ex-war-dept LNWR underframe. We have been unable to establish what coach this underframe came from, but it was a 50' brake coach.

See the web page on the restoration of No.7598 for more details.
