Mystery Number 20
– supplied by anonymous
This is well documented - 17in Coal Engine LMS No. 8204
at Crewe South shed on 5th May 1934 with the carriage
shed in the background.
But what is the carriage on the right?

|The carriage looks like a standard LNWR 30ft 1in 5 compartment third to D297, described by Philip Millard as the “must numerous of any British railway carriage”. The livery is less clear though. I suppose it could be all-over LMS red, but it looks a bit drab for that. Maybe it is a departmental livery?|

|I think the carriage is painted black and is being used as an Engineering Dept. mess room. If so there should be a large letter E on the bottom corner of the carriage as on the wagons in the background. Maybe it’s on the right hand corner.|
