British Railways Mk.I BCK No.21246
Mk.I BCK 21246 during its test run on 21 November 2018 (Martin Lawrence)
Corridor Brake Composite 21246 was part of BR Lot 30669 (comprising Nos. 21236–21251) which was built for the London Midland Region. It is one of the very last carriages to be built at Swindon before the closure of the Carriage Works* in 1962. It was built to diagram 171 with 12 first-class seats and 18 second (the LMR seated three-a-side in second class, while the SR ones – diagram 172 – were four-a-side in second class). As built, it was mounted on Commonwealth (later BR Code BT43) bogies and was equipped with vacuum braking and dual (steam and electric) heating.
