Three six-wheel coaches were photographed at Aston Shed by James S Doubleday on 4th July 1957, two of which are said to be LNWR and one of MR origin. Confirmation of their origin and any extra information would be gratefully received. All information will be duly credited.

M284568 is a former LNWR 30ft 1in Luggage Composite of D.197. There were 127 of these built in 1888-1894. All survived the grouping, 40 remained in 1933, but the type became extinct in revenue service in 11/36. The style of numbers suggests that it was transferred to service stock around that time.

M284609 is the same type but heavily altered with boarding replacing most of the upper panelling. I would guess that this was done post-war, but perhaps earlier.

DM22328M was a former ex-Midland Railway vehicle - it seems to be a 31ft 0in brake-third.

Regrettably no records survive which enable these service vehicles to be identified with specific former numbers.
