Vintage Carriages Trust – VCT

Museum of Rail Travel

The Vintage Carriages Trust owns, restores and maintains a fleet of vintage historical railway carriages at their museum premises at Ingrow. The full list is available on their website. Owing to the nature of such vintage vehicles they are not used on everyday service trains. Those that have been restored to a condition suitable for locomotive haulage can be seen on special occasions such as vintage train weekends.

Not all the carriages are suitable for passenger use, but the following may be seen out and about on the Railway at special events
Metropolitan Railway 7 Compartment Brake Third, no. 427
Metropolitan Railway 9 Compartment Third, no. 465
Metropolitan Railway 7 Compartment First, no. 509
Southern Railway Corridor ‘Matchboard’ Third, no. 3554
