These passenger coaches were originally owned by the Metropolitan Railway. A number of these coaches were preserved by the Bluebell Railway.


The Railway Series

In 1962, Stepney came on loan to Sodor bringing his controller and a rake of coaches from the Bluebell Railway[1].

Technical Details


These coaches are based on the real Metropolitan Railway wooden bogie stock built by the Ashbury Railway Carriage & Iron Co. in 1898.

The Bluebell Railway has four 1898–1900 Ashbury and Cravens carriages, and a fifth, built at Neasden, is at the London Transport Museum.[2]


These coaches are painted orange-brown with white rooftops and yellow numbering, some coaches are painted brown with cream windows.
