New 3 Cor Sets

Southern Region’s BR Standard (Mk1) three-car corridor (3 Cor) sets nos. 515 to 571 were introduced between June 1955 and March 1957. These sets were not formed in numerical order; starting with the formation of sets 520 (June 1955) through to set 560 (7th January 1957) thence with sets 515 to 519 being formed concurrent with 561 to 563 during January & February 1957. Sets 564 to 572 continued numerically; the last being set 572 in March 1957 (before immediate disbandment in April 1957).

Sets 515 to 558 & 561 were formed in CLC-livery. ‘Man of Kent’ sets 559 & 560 were delivered new in Green-livery, as were sets 562 to 572.

Three further Green-livery sets (572 to 574) were formed in May 1962 predominantly utilising vehicles from ‘The Royal Wessex’.

Sets 515 to 519

Formed between January & February 1957 in CLC-livery. Allocated to the South Western Division (SWD).

Sets 520 to 531

Formed between January & June 1955 in CLC-livery. Allocated to the South Eastern Division (SED).

Sets 532 to 535

Formed in July 1955 in CLC-livery. Allocated to the South Eastern Division (SED).

Sets 536 to 540

Formed between July & August 1955 in CLC-livery. Allocated to the South Eastern Division (SED).

Sets 541 to 558

Formed between October 1956 & January 1957 in CLC-livery. Allocated to the South Eastern Division (SED). Set 552 was disbanded by February 1960 to form ‘new’ SWD 7-buffet set 280 (later 8 Cor). After further reformations set 280 was reduced to 3 Cor comprising the original vehicles of set 552. Being integral to the history of the coaches in set 552, this is all covered under the notes for set 552 (with set 280 included).

Sets 559 & 560

Formed in January 1957 in Green-livery. Allocated ‘Man of Kent’ services (SED).

Sets 561 to 572

Formed between January to March 1957 with set 561 in CLC-livery and sets 562 to 572 in Green-livery. Set 572 immediately disbanded in April 1957. Allocated to the South Western Division (SWD).

Sets 572 to 574

Green-liveried sets nos. 572 to 574 were formed in 1962 utilising the former ‘The Royal Wessex’ stock after this service had been taken over by Bulleid Sets (‘The Royal Wessex’ stock change 2nd April 1962). Allocated to the South Western Division (SWD).

In March 1966 those Southern Region sets remaining in traffic were officially disbanded.

Upon disbandment many of the coaches in these sets were rebuilt for use in the new Bournemouth line electrification 3TC /4TC /4 REP multiple unit stock.

Set Numbering Conventions

BR(S) convention meant each set was normally arranged with the coach conveying first-class (CK) positioned adjacent to the higher-numbered BTK. On four coach sets this convention also positioned the corridor to the compartments on the same-side placing first-class towards the middle of each four-coach set.

Abolition of Second Class

Third- class was designated second-class following the abolition of second-class by British Railways on Sunday 3rd June 1956. As these sets only carried a number ‘1’ to denote first-class this change was essentially a paper one including BTK now being designated BSK. In the table below coaches are described as Third-class unless they were inserted into a set after 3rd June 1956 when Second Class is used.

UIC banding

Whilst in Crimson Lake & Cream livery none of these sets carried the sixties-introduced ‘UIC’ yellow cantrail band denoting first class. In Green-livery the Mk1 coaches forming these sets did not carry BR carriage roundels; these being reserved for special sets (for example, ‘The Royal Wessex’ sets) and multiple-unit motor-coaches.

Set allocations in 1959

In June 1959, the majority of 3 Cor sets allocated to the Waterloo - West of England and Waterloo - Weymouth 'pool' (3-sets 'L') were Bulleid types. However, there were also BR Standard Mk 1 3-sets 521, 522, 523 and 524.

By November 1959 a significant number BR Mark 1 3 Cor sets had been transferred off the South Eastern (a consequence of Kent Coast electrification Phase I). In a pool of their own (3 Cor ‘K’ sets) all were allocated to Waterloo – Weymouth to join sets 521, 522, 523 & 524. These were nos. 518, 519, 526, 527, 528, 529, 561, 562, 563, 564, 565, 566, 567, 568, 569, 570 & 571.

Set allocations in 1960

In June 1960 all the Bulleid and Mark 1 3 Cor sets were allocated to the same pool (‘L’ sets) within the allocation pages. However, the individual listings show notes 'K' for the Mk 1 sets. The same sets as for November 1959 were shown plus sets 530 & 531.

Formed from set 552, set 280 allocated to London Ramsgate – Margate ‘B’ services (7 buffet set).

By September 1960 there was a reversion to separate Waterloo - Bournemouth - Weymouth allocation (notes 'K').  Allocated sets as for June 1960.

Set 280 remained allocated to London Ramsgate – Margate ‘B’ services (7 buffet set).

Set allocations in 1961

In June 1961 the sets were back to the 'all in one pool' scenario with additional sets allocated: 556, 557 & 558.

Set 280 allocated to Waterloo – Weymouth Quay services (8 Cor).

By September 1961 the sets were separate again. Details of all sets allocated to Waterloo - Bournemouth - Weymouth allocation (notes 'K') were: 518, 519, 521, 522, 523, 524, 526, 527, 528, 529, 530, 531, 532, 533, 534, 535, 536, 556, 557, 558, 559, 560, 561, 562, 563, 564, 565, 566, 567, 568, 569, 570 & 571.
