Shortly after the appointment of Edward Thompson as Chief Mechanical Engineer, the LNER implemented a post-war building program of over 4,000 coaches to replenish their outdated rolling stock. With suitable materials scarce to continue manufacturing Thompson’s predecessor, Nigel Greasley’s Teak coaches, Thompson designed a new series of all steel corridor coaches. These new designs were revised several times due to further material shortages and the coaches were finally built from 1947 to 1950 with steel bodies over teak frames. The bodies were then painted with a simulated Teak finish to help match that of the existing LNER coach stock.
