They Added The Windows Later?
So said Timmy to Siddy as they explored a carriage from the very first "tube" railway that ran, initially from the City at King Edward Street (not far from today's Bank station) to South London. There is a clue in the company name!:
But fbb can only find pictures of these unattractive vehicles with their tiny little windows in place.
Was Timmy wrong?
fbb does not know for certain, but, elsewhere in Timmy's twittering oeuvre, the maestro reveals that there exists a padded cell "clone" without windows.
"But where?" we hear our readers cry.
For this we must go to the Great Northern Hotel, seen below over the roof of St Pancras, courtesy of Google Earth.
The new Kings Cross concourse was cleverly designed to fit the curved shape of the hotel. As part of the general up-fettling of the area, the hotel has been substantially upgraded - in luxury as well as price.
But perhaps you could go down to the basement without spending a fortune. Here you would find a corridor that artistically re-creates a window-less "padded cells" carriage ...
New Trains For Nexus Transport
The new trains, it would appear, have a full frontal cab. Shame!
Here is approx 3 minutes of video telling you how truly wonderful Stadler are.
Rails of Sheffield are offering all savvy railway modellers a real bargain, their EXCLUSIVE Iron Mink.
Offered originally at £37 (OUCH), the knock-down price is now £29 (LESS OUCH). Were the finances even more agreeable (remember there's £4 postage to be added), fbb quite fancies the GWR wartime special livery.
Did Rails order too many, hence the "bargain"?
And then there's the Accurascale CDA hopper wagon - a superbly detailed model.

I agree with you fbb - I'm sure the C&SLR carriages did always have the tiny windows. I wonder though if Timmy saw this from the London Transport Museum, which suggests that LARGER windows were indeed added later, and removed on the preserved example: https://www.ltmuseum.co.uk/collections/collections-online/vehicles/item/1981-538.ReplyDelete
