|This article is about narrow gauge carriages. You may be looking for standard gauge ones.|
The open-topped carriages are based on the third class four-wheeled carriages used by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in the 1830s. However, they have been re-scaled to narrow gauge.
These carriages are commonly painted red with black lining and gold door handles, they also have the Ulfstead Castle crest on both sides. A blue variant was also seen in King of the Railway and The Lost Puff, this carriage does not feature the Ulfstead Castle crest on it's sides.
- Throughout King of the Railway and the seventeenth series, the open-topped carriages inconsistently change in height. This is because a blue narrow gauge carriage was mistakenly used instead of the standard gauge variant.
