Description

The LMS introduced lavatory stock for the convenience of passengers on the longer suburban and some cross- country services. To some extent they became redundant when such services were provided with older corridor coaches in the 1930s, giving all passengers access to toilets rather than just those in adjoining compartments as in these coaches. Originally the brake thirds and composites to D1686 (COMET MODELS M98) were supposed to run in sets, but in the ‘anything goes’ operating methods of the company they ran mixed in with other non-corridor stock, albeit made up into sets as traffic required.
