XYZ - Fixed Wheel 1st/2nd/Van Car


The railways ran a small group of guards vans that had 1st and 2nd class accommodation. The vans were used on mixed trains and smaller branchline trains.

The carriages/vans were classed as ABD_ until 1910 when the lettering and numbers were altered and the car/vans became XYZ. By 1910 there were thirteen vehicles. The class numbers were 1 - 13.

One XYZ car was scrapped in 1912. An extra vehicle was not converted until 1922 when _YZ_ 12 became XYZ 14.

This class was gradually withdrawn from service between 1928 and 1939.
