The LMS Society - Coach Drawings Held

The LMS Society holds a selection of coach drawings per the following list which came to it from one of its founding members, the late David Jenkinson. These drawings were used by David during the preparation of his series of books on LMS and LNWR/WCJS carriages.

A few of the drawings have been scanned. A link will be found to those that have in the "Drawing Number" column below. Click on the "Drawing Number" to download as a PNG file. Be warned that, depending on the speed of your connection, downloads may take some time. This service is free of charge but if a drawing is used commercially or reproduced in any way we would ask that the LMS Society is acknowledged as the source of the drawing.

We now have access to a high quality plan scanner and the rest of the collection will be digitised as time and demand allows. Going forward the preferred way to deal with a request for a drawing would be to scan the drawing and make it available electronically. All common graphic file formats can be accommodated, please let us know your requirements in your enquiry.

Should a paper copy still be required please contact the Society's Drawing's Officer for details of the costs involved in the first instance. The drawings are in the main quite large and will cost in the region of £4.50 to copy (A0 sized - some might be larger and dearer) while postage will depend on the destination and whether the drawings are to be dispatched rolled or folded. Within the UK one or two folded drawings would be in the region of £1.75. Above that about £4.00 for up to 1 kg. Rolled, the drawings would be about £17 by ParcelForce or £6 by EVRi. All prices are approximate and subject to confirmation. For oversees postage please ask for an estimate - dispatching rolled drawings outwith the UK is probably not practical.

Please contact Jim Smellie, 15 Tay Crescent, Bishopbriggs, GLASGOW, G64 1EU
Telephone: 07771 956 643

The Society also holds a quantity of Midland Railway coach and NPCS diagrams.

Exemplified by the D436 First Class Dining Carriage above these drawings have now all been scanned and are available for download free of charge. If used commercially or reproduced in any way we would ask that the LMS Society is acknowledged as the source of the drawing.

Finally we have been given permission to offer an archive of material on the 1937 Coronation Scot trains assembled by railway historian and researcher Paul Isles.
