London & South Western Railway
DC electric suburban services

In summation the mainstay for DC electric suburban services was provided by the 3 Car Motor Units. Initially this was for the LSWR 1915 electrification (London & South Western Railway) then subsequently the  Southern Electric (following the formation of the Southern Railway from 1st January 1923) right through to these units’ Wartime augmentation to 4-car.

Usually referred to as ‘3s’ in internal railway publications, these electric units often operated in pairs with 2-coach Trailer Sets (coupled in between) to form an 8-car train.

During the Second World War these 3 Car Motor Units were augmented to 4-cars so as to bring the trailer-unit operations to a close. Eventually these augmented 4-car units were referred to as 4 SUB when the ‘Bulleid’ 4 SUB units started to appear from 1941.

Increasing Capacity

Due to the rapid growth in traffic following the LSWR electrification scheme in 1915 /1916 it became necessary to increase capacity on a number of trains to cope with demand. There were insufficient electric 3 Car Motor Units available to make-up trains to three‑unit formations and 9-car trains were too long for a number of platforms.

Two‑coach Trailer Sets

So, in May 1919 it was decided to form ten two‑coach Trailer Sets by converting five four-coach bogie block trains which would be marshalled between two 3 Car Motor Units on busy trains giving an 8-car train. The performance of the 3 Car Motor Units was sufficient to allow these 8-car trains to maintain the electric schedules.

Conversion of Steam-hauled Stock

Conversion proceeded quite slowly, with ten Trailer Sets being ready by May 1920, but in view of still rising traffic a further four bogie block trains were then authorised for conversion to bring the total of Trailer Sets up to eighteen, and a further three were taken for conversion in October 1922 bringing the total of new Trailer Sets up to twenty four.

Twelve of the steam bogie-block trains were therefore modified at Eastleigh to form the Trailer Sets, these vehicles thereby having the same body styles as the 3 Car Motor Units after conversion.

The vehicles had been built at Eastleigh between March 1904 and September 1912 and were mounted on wooden underframes with steel channel solebars. The 7-compartment Brake Thirds became 9-compartment vehicles with two new compartments replacing the former van area, these new compartments being 5' 8" wide whilst the original seven were 5' 6" wide. They now weighed 22 tons 18cwt.

Once again vehicle lengths differed, twelve of the vehicles were 49' over bodywork (51' 7" over buffers) whilst the remainder were 51' long (53' 7" over buffers). The Trailer Sets were formed with an 8‑compartment coach (eighty seats) coupled to a 9‑compartment one (ninety seats), alternate sets being formed with a shorter underframe vehicle, sets therefore being either 105' or 107' long. Overall width was 8' 10½" and they weighed 45 tons 12cwt (107' ones) or 45 tons 8cwt (105' ones) and seated one hundred & seventy third-class.

The Composites had all eight compartments downgraded to third-class, the 49' former Tri‑Composites having three compartments 6' 6" wide, three 5' 10" wide and two 5' 6" wide, whilst the 51' Tri‑Composites had four at 6' 6" and four at 6' 0" wide, though one vehicle was taken from a different batch of 51' Bi‑Composites having five 6' 6" and three 5' 10" compartments. The 49' coaches now weighed 22 tons 14cwt whilst the 51' coaches were 22 tons 18cwt.

Braking Systems

Modifications consisted of altering the braking from vacuum to the quick‑acting air system of the 3 Car Motor Units and converting the heating and lighting to work with power supplied from the 3 Car Motor Units via the jumper connections.

Power Supply

Batteries where fitted were removed as these were no longer required. No shoegear was fitted to these Trailer Sets, nor were any driving cabs provided, the outermost vehicle ends were fitted with waist height jumper connections for heating, lighting and through-control purposes, the air braking connections remaining at low level adjacent to the screw coupling. Cables connecting the power jumpers of the 3 Car Motor Units were run along the coach roofs rather than underfloor as on the 3 Car Motor Units.

Passenger Accommodation

All accommodation was now third-class, though due to the origins of the vehicles, the former first and second class compartments were wider than the original third class ones.

Couplings

Coaches were close‑coupled with the LSWR type block‑train steel disc and drawbar coupling, later replaced by the SR style centre buffer and three link chain, and the former van space end of the 9‑compartment coach was outermost, with the wider former first‑class compartments of the 8‑compartment coaches also being outermost.

Former Composites also had conventional buffing gear fitted at what became the outer end of the Trailer Set. All coaches retained their original LSWR fixed bolster bogies on conversion.

Depots

They were initially maintained with the 3 Car Motor Units at Durnsford Road and Strawberry Hill.

Smoking

The 8‑compartment coaches contained two non-smoking compartments, these being the third one in from each end of the coach, whilst the 9 compartment coach had three, located as the second from each end and the centremost one.

Into Service

The first Trailer Sets were ready for use from the summer of 1920 and were allocated set numbers T1-T24 by the LSWR, but became Trailer Sets 1001-1024 following formation of the Southern Railway in 1923. However, the vehicles were not renumbered until they required repainting; this started in 1926 with the last being done as late as August 1931.

The LSWR numbered the 9‑compartment coaches 7401 /7404 /7405 /7408 /7409 /7412 /7413 /7416 /7417 /7420 /7421 /7423 then odd numbers up to 7447. The 51' long 8‑compartment vehicles were numbered 7402 /7406 /7410 /7414 /7418 /7424 /7428 /7430 /7436 /7438 /7440 /7446 whilst the 49' vehicles became 7403 /7407 /7411 /7415 /7419 /7422 /7426 /7432 /7434 /7442 /7444 /7448.

The rather haphazard way the sets were numbered stems partly from the fact that they were delivered in three batches, the first ten in 1920, a further batch of eight followed late in 1921 and the final six not delivered until early 1923, and the numbering of different vehicle types in one number range. The SR renumbered all the coaches into a new series between 8901 and 8948 and rearranged them into individual types within this series. The new numbers were then:

9‑compartment coaches 8925-8948.

51' 8‑compartment coaches 8913-8924.

49' 8‑compartment coaches 8901-8912.

The 9‑compartment trailers were allocated diagram number 722 whilst the 8‑compartment trailers (49' bodies) became diagram number 720 and those with (51' bodies) became diagram number 721.

Livery

Coaches were renumbered as they became due for a general overhaul and were repainted into SR dark green at this time.

Bogie Modifications

The ex. LSWR fixed bolster bogies did not ride that well and accordingly were rebuilt with moving bolsters, this work being authorised by H.O. 391 dated 8th November 1928, which also included the trailer bogies of the ex. LSWR 3 Car Motor Units nos.1201-1284. This work was completed by August 1933.

However, these bogies continued to give trouble as they wore out, and a further order, H.O. 809 dated 23rd March 1934 authorised the provision of one-hundred new ‘standard’ bogies to re‑equip this whole batch of Trailer Sets and provide a few spares.

Lighting Jumpers

These Trailer Sets did not originally have the central lighting jumper found on other suburban stock batches as they ran with the ex. LSWR and Guildford /Dorking units which were also not so fitted when new. They were modified from about 1934 when the ex. LSWR units were rebuilt on longer underframes and made more standard with all the other units, the Western Section units then becoming common-user with the remainder of the suburban fleet from 1938.

Planned Rebuilding

It was planned to rebuild these Trailer Sets in a similar manner to the ex. LSWR 3 Car Motor Units, and Eastleigh were given H.O. 1007 dated 17-Dec-37 for rebuilding of one set onto standard underframes. However, this was cancelled from 20-Jul-38 and none were rebuilt.

Wartime & Reformations

Two sets were withdrawn following accident damage, two others were damaged during the war and not repaired and one was used for wartime purposes with the bodies grounded following accident damage, the remainder surviving in traffic until all were withdrawn between 1946 and 1949 and scrapped, the bodies at Lancing and underframes mostly in the London area, during the large scale reorganisation of the suburban fleet into 4-car motor units. A handful of this batch lasted until the end of Trailer Set operation on the SR on 26th September 1948.

The original formations of the LSWR sets is shewn below, followed by the new SR set number and the date the set was renumbered along with the works where this was carried out. Dates sets entered traffic are shewn below the set number in the second table.

Note on Disposals

Coaches shewn as disposed of by ‘London Bridge’ are believed to have been allocated to London Bridge C&W staff for breaking, the actual location of breaking-up being uncertain, though in the London Bridge C&W area (possibly at Ewer Street or Rotherhithe Road), as coach breaking is unlikely to have taken place at London Bridge itself.

Southern Railway Trailer Set Vehicles

 

The origin of vehicles converted for use in the subsequent batches of Trailer Sets ordered by the Southern Railway was complex. and is shewn in detail in the sections on individual batches of sets. The following table summarises all the vehicles utilised:

 

Column

 

1

Coach numbers.

2

The sets to which they were allocated.

3

Coupling arrangement within set (C for close coupled with three link chain and centre buffer followed by CB for centre buffer fitted or RP for rubbing plate fitted, L for loose with side buffers and screw coupling).

4

The location where the conversion to electric operation was carried out.

5

Details of the underframe type (STD is new 62' 0" frame constructed at Lancing works, non-standard lengths are detailed and AC is a former LBSCR underframe used earlier in AC units).

6

Pre-grouping company which built the bodies.

7

Date of conversion.

8

Layout of the vehicle (number of compartments).

9

SR diagram number allocated to the modified body.

10

H.O. order number for the batch of sets.

 

All vehicles were classified as Trailer Thirds (TT). In some cases, vehicles were not allocated to sets in numerical order or a particular type of vehicle did not appear in each set, in these cases the number range of the set numbers is shewn in brackets. Similarly, some batches of coaches though numbered in one series utilised bodies from different sources in otherwise identical coaches and had different diagram numbers as a result, these are also shewn in square brackets.

The diagram numbers of many vehicles were later amended during the wholesale reforming of sets between 1934 and 1938 when many were altered to be close‑coupled to a newly converted ex. LSWR 10 or 11-compartment coach, or when they were reformed into newly augmented 4 SUB units from 1943 onwards.

Origin of Trailer Set Vehicles
(where known)

Ex. LSWR Coaches

The original identity of conversions of former LSWR stock into 10 & 11-compartment trailer thirds at Eastleigh from 1934 onwards is known, with two distinct types being used, split between those converted into 11-compartment vehicles and those used as the basis of 10-compartment vehicles.

Coaches for conversion into 11-compartment Trailer Thirds for Trailer Sets were drawn from the large number of 51' 0" 7-compartment Brake Thirds built at Eastleigh between 1902 and 1912 as the end vehicles of bogie-block suburban sets. These coaches were constructed on wooden underframes, though with some steel strengthening, though those constructed after about 1905 had steel solebars. All had electric lighting from new. They had conventional buffers at the brakevan end and the LSWR pattern steel disc and drawbar block coupling at the passenger end.

Conversion work took place at Ashford works where the body was mounted onto a new standard 62' 0" underframe (from Lancing) and the former brakevan area was removed and replaced by four new 5' 6½" wide compartments. The original seven passenger compartments were 5' 6" wide however. The resulting 11-compartment coaches were therefore now 62' 0" long over bodies (64' 2¾" over buffers) and they now seated 110 third.

One each of the vehicles were used during 1928/9 (along with an SECR conversion) to form sets 1121-1167 whilst a few more were converted in 1930/1 for sets 1188-1194. All these vehicles had new underframes with a rubbing plate fitted at what became the inner end of the set. A number of the original discarded composite construction underframes were later re-used under passenger vans.

The following table lists these vehicles in their final electric stock number series, with their original numbers and construction dates, their second LSWR number where applicable, their new SR number (those in italics were never applied), the date the vehicle was withdrawn for conversion, the new electric stock number and the initial set allocation of the vehicle.

Coaches for conversion into 10-compartment Trailer Thirds for Trailer Sets were drawn from a large batch of 8-compartment Thirds built at Eastleigh between 1894 and 1902, along with a few from a batch of 8‑compartment Second /Third composites (some of these having originally had four second and four third compartments) with the seconds at one end, whilst others had the four seconds in the centre of the coach with two thirds at each end.

The four vehicles of this type converted for use in Trailer Sets were all of the first type. These Composites were to an identical layout to the full thirds, the only difference being that the seating had side and a centre armrests dividing it into four seats across, and had been subsequently downgraded to all-third between 1918 and 1920 with the seating altered to five aside by removal of these armrests.

Virtually all of these coaches were delivered fitted with gas lighting which they retained until conversion to electric trailers, but some of the later built ones had electric lighting from new, whilst all were fitted with steam heating between 1908 and 1913. They were mounted on wooden underframes with steel flitch plates along the solebars.

Most had been renumbered by the LSWR (some of those delivered as composites more than once, all being downgraded to Thirds between 1918 and 1920), and all were renumbered again by the SR, though the process of renumbering was slow as vehicles were only done during major body overhauls involving complete repainting. The SR diagram number for these vehicles in loco-hauled format was 12.

During conversion at Eastleigh, most retained their original external appearance with side panelling with wooden overbeading. However, the last two batches converted were repanelled with flush steel panelling giving a much smoother external appearance. Two new matching compartments were added during conversion to bring them up to 62' 0" long, now with ten compartments and seating one hundred third-class.

Some of the new underframes were fitted with a rubbing plate (diagram no.731) whilst others had the centre-buffer (diagram no.732) at the inner end of the set. TT 9298 was slightly non-standard as the body was mounted onto a former ‘Continental’ 62’ 0” underframe built at Ashford October 193 for First 7372, this coach having its body destroyed by fire at Dover Marine in July 1935. As a result, it was allocated diagram number no. 739 which was amended to 743 when coach formed into 4 SUB unit no.4176.

The following table lists these vehicles in their final electric stock number series, with their original numbers and construction dates, type of lighting when new (G = gas, E = electric), their second LSWR number where applicable, their new SR number, the date the vehicle was withdrawn for conversion, the new electric stock number, the initial set allocation of the vehicle, diagram number No. and intermediate coupling type (RP = rubbing plate, CB = centre buffer).
