Preserved GWR Coaching Stock

updated 22-Jan-16

This table provides details of (all ?) surviving Great Western Railway Coaches plus a number of vehicles built by British Railways to Great Western Railway designs. The first column gives the running number. The next column is the GWR Diagram Number for the design. Note that the table includes both passenger and non-passenger vehicles in the Coaching Stock Register. Next is the Lot Number under which the vehicle was ordered, and this is followed by the (approx) date of introduction into service, and the BR type designation. Under the description of the vehicle, capital letters are used to denote the telegraphic code name used by the GWR and BR(WR). The next column shows the current statys of the vehicle (OK= full running order, UR=under repair). This is followed by the current location of the vehicle (where known). The final column gives alternative numbers carried by the vehicle at some stage of its life. In many cases this is the number carried when transferred into Engineering Department stock.

There are undoubtedly some errors and ommissions in this list. Any help in correcting or updating this data would be greatly appreciated. Comments or corrections by email to: webmaster @
Special thanks to Dave Bowden in providing corrections to this list.
