Smoking carriage interior

Photographs, a collection of 487 silver gelatin glass negatives 8½ x 6½ ins, from the Wolverton Carriage Works, featuring London Midland & Scottish Railway carriages, c 1928-1936. Includes negative register, foolscap covers, approximately 100 pages.

This collection of silver gelatin glass negatives dates from the London Midland & Scottish Railway period of Wolverton Carriage & Wagon Works and comprises posed photographs of carriages and wagons at the works.

Wolverton Carriage & Wagon Works was built as a locomotive repair shop for the London & North Western Railway in 1846. In 1877 all locomotive production was transferred to Crewe and the Wolverton site was from then on used for the construction and refurbishment of carriages, wagons, and road vehicles. Following the 1923 grouping this role continued under the London Midland & Scottish Railway. During the Second World War the works also built aircraft components, assault craft, and armoured vehicles. Wolverton subsequently produced rolling stock for British Railways, together with Post Office sorting vans and saloons for Queen Elizabeth II's royal train.
