Dandy car, North British Railway
Dandy car, North British Railway, Port Carlisle Dandy Car (dark red horse drawn rail coach).
This is one of four horse-drawn Dandy cars built by the North British Railway at its St Margaret’s Works, Edinburgh.
The North British Railway, one of Scotland’s major railways, operated the branch extending from Carlisle to Silloth and its sub-branch to Port Carlisle. Freight services on the latter branch were discontinued as early as 1899, but a horse-drawn passenger service instituted in 1863 remained until early 1914, when it was finally superseded by steam.
