|The information on this page is not intended to be
chapter and verse on this most intricate of topics, but is an indication of the
composition of various coach sets at particular times. The page is collated
from the member's files area and draws heavily on information supplied by
Glen Woods, with information in David Gould's "Maunsell's SR Steam
Passenger Stock 1923-1939", Mike King's "Southern Pull-Push Stock" and additional information
from John Arkell and Mike Watts. It is not complete, indeed it may never be, but is an on-going
project to provide information on sets to the Southern enthusiast and modeller
alike. Where a coach number is followed by another number in brackets, then
this is that coach's previous number. Where a tilde has replaced a number
this is because the coach concerned could be changed (e.g. as with RMBs). The
dates are not intended to define changes in the sets but merely an anchor in
time for when they were constituted as shown. They may well have remained
unchanged for a number of years before or after the date shown.
Don't forget - third class was abolished in 1956, becoming second class, subsequently standard class. No separate entry has been made for this change as it would add unecessarily to the file size so please remember that from 1956 anything that is still showing as 'T' has become 'S', e.g. BTK becomes BSK. The new notation is used next time there is a tangible change for a set.
A start has been made on classifying sets as:
Articulared (Art),Pull-Push sets shown are designated PP
A few sets show either/or coach numbers (e.g. 426 and 429 of 1931). This is where we know a coach was removed from a set, but do not know which one was removed!
