You couldn't beat the old B.R.Mk1 coaches with there commonwealth bogies they rode well and they always looked good behind anything from a Black 5 a Jubilee and a Britannia to a EE type 4 a Brush type 4 and a class 86 A/C Electric loco and everything inbetween and from a personal opinion i reckon they were the best passenger coaches ever built for the railways, i especially liked them in B.R.Maroon livery and the later B.R. blue/grey livery suited them very good as well.

Went today with the family and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I did a bit of a write up for the LNERCA Facebook page.

The original picture featured a B.R.Mk1 coach.
