LMS 57ft Non-Corridor Stock - LMS Edition
After the Grouping in 1923 the first CME of the LMS George Hughes set about designing standardised passenger stock. One of the first fruits of this work was a series of 57 ft fully panelled Non-Corridor stock. Built from 1925 through to 1930. After Hughes's retirement in 1925 Sir Henry Fowler took over the production of the coaches, also designing a series of 57ft Lavatory Non-Corridor stock for longer distance cross country workings. These two types were used extensively all over the LMS network. Final withdrawals were in the mid 1960's.
