Description

These designs represented the final development of the 70′ coach and marked the beginning of the bow-ended era. The bow end reduced the length of the corridor bellows and required the introduction of buckeye couplings and fold-down buffers. However, C46 had flat ends whereas C50 had bow ends.

They were introduced first on the Paddington-Cardiff service and became known as South Wales Stock; however they were dispersed more widely as newer designs were introduced.
