Description

B sets consisted of two permanently coupled non-gangwayed brake composites with the brake ends outermost. They were used for branch services and cross-country stopping trains and could be found almost anywhere on the GWR and WR (BR) system. This diagram was built for the Bristol Division (set numbers 8-12) and many were based at Taunton working branches such as Minehead, Yeovil, Chard, Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and Torrington, some of these having journeys of up to 50 miles. They were also used on main line stopping trains and it was not unusual for them to be hauled by a big engine (even a King) on a running in turn.
