Carriage Stock at Foxfield Railway

Carriages at Foxfield span nearly 100 years of design development - compare the NSR carriage body number 61 built in the mid 1870s with the most recent BR Mark 2 carriage built in 1966. Both were built with the identical purpose of carrying third class passengers, but the differences in size and construction are enormous. All the carriages represent types in use in North Staffordshire and Derbyshire throughout a century. On a preserved railway carriage have a very practical purpose of carrying fare-paying passengers, and for this the BR Mark 1 vehicles dating from the 1950s are mainly used, but it is hoped to bring some of the vintage stock up to passenger carrying standard one day. Not to be forgotten is the "non-passenger carriage stock" or NPCS. At Foxfield there can be seen examples of a couple of common types.
