Basic rule is that GNR carriage buffers of the Howlden period are 18 inches overall from buffer beam to buffer head. There are of course exceptions,
specifically the short buffers on some of the Suburban sets.

Also the underframes are slightly shorter than the body.

Thanks, Paul. Now I've downloaded and blown up the drawing I can see what you mean.

This may be old news to some, but I have just been loaned some photographs which show that the other composite in the set was numbered 126.

Just to round this topic off (unless anything completely new surfaces), the complete train in model form on Grantham.

Mmm

Just a thought, those two composites, according to the GN diagram book there were only ever two of them and both went to the M&GN.

Maybe that's why they survived as six wheeler passenger carriages in 1938 when many others had been incorporated into artic sets, transferred into departmental use or simply broken up?
