Carriage Compendium, Diagram Details & Running Numbers of GNSR/LNER Northern Scottish Area Carriages

Booklet published by the Great North of Scotland Railway Association in 2010, 38 pages. A4 size booklet (N7274X1)

From the introduction: This Compendium is a supplement to Carriages of the Great North of Scotland Railway. That book gives a detailed history of all the GNSR built carriages as well as providing general details such as liveries, types of brakes used and construction methods. This booklet provides additional detail for GNSR carriages, including running numbers, building and withdrawal dates and disposal details. It also includes full details of the vehicles transferred to the Northern Scottish Area of the LNER until separate Area records ceased to be maintained, about 1943. Full records are available for vehicles extant from about 1907. Information on those withdrawn before then has been deduced from study of the Minutes of the GNSR and its constituent Companies and the stock returns included in Annual Reports. Contents include:
