GNR 1875 Carriage Cleaning Device
On Tuesday morning, last week some private experiments took place near the running sheds of the Great Northern Railway, King’s-cross, with some machinery just erected there for cleaning railway carriages by mechanical means invented by the Earl of Caithness. The invention consists essentially of two large vertical brushes driven by a little steam engine; a number of dirty carriages making up a train of any length is passed slowly between these revolving brushes; water is thrown upon the side of eac..
GNR 1921 Dining car set
A New Great Northern Dining Car Train. (1921) For many years past the Great Northern Railway Company’s line between London and the manufacturing towns in the West Riding of Yorkshire has been noted for comfort and convenience. The first dining car train to be run on a British railway was put into operation on the company’s London to Leeds route as far back as 1879, while in 1893 the ""G.N.R"" was the first to conceive the idea of running third class dining cars, though its..

MET 1895 Metropolitan Railway History
HISTORY OF THE METROPOLITAN RAILWAY. Probably few persons among the many hundreds of thousands annually using the Metropolitan Railway are aware that when it was first opened for traffic, in January, 1863, from Bishop's-road to Farringdon-street, it was a broad-gauge line, worked by broad-gauge engines and carriages. As a matter of fact, it was a "mixed gauge" line, being laid with both the 7ft. and the ordinary 4ft. 8¼  in.  gauges, although only broad-gauge rolling stock..
MR 1875 Pullman Cars
PULLMAN CARS (1875)  In the year 1859 Mr. Pullman constructed the first of the cars which have since made the name of Pullman world-famed, and this car was placed in service on the Chicago and Alton Railway, a line extending from Chicago to St. Louis, some 280 miles in length. Previous to this time sleeping cars had been in use, to a limited extent, upon several American railways, but they were for the most part crude in their arrangements, and ill adapted for meeting the requirements of fatigui..
MR 1876 Composite Carriage
MIDLAND RAILWAY DOUBLE-BOGIE CARRIAGES (1876). It is now about two years since the Midland Railway Company commenced running Pullman cars on their line, the first regular service of these cars having been established, as many of our readers will remember, between London and Bradford. The result of the working of these cars was so satisfactory to the company that they soon largely extended their use of double-bogie passenger stock; and when about fourteen months ago {vide page 203 of our nineteenth volume..
MR 1904 Steam Coaches
STEAM MOTOR COACHES, MIDLAND RAILWAY. (1904) On July 4th the Midland Railway Company put into service the first of the self-propelling steam railway coaches that are to run between Morecambe and Heysham, and in this week’s issue, through the courtesy of Mr. Deeley, the locomotive superintendent, and Mr. Rain, the carnage and wagon superintendent, of that railway, we are able to publish several illustrations and give the leading particulars of one of these vehicles. Two of these coaches have been co..
NBR 1873 Sleeping Carriage
"RAILWAY SLEEPING CARRIAGE" The practice of attaching sleeping cars to long journey trains has prevailed for many years in America, and there are but few who travel frequently over our long northern routes who do not devoutly wish that a similar accommodation were afforded in England. It has indeed been a long recognised  necessity, and it is satisfactory to find that some step has recently been taken towards supplying the want. The North British Railway Company have taken the initiative i..
