Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Corridor connection is a flexible connector fitted to the end of a railway coach to enable passage from one coach to another without falling out of the train. The London and North Western Railway was the first British railway to provide passengers with the means to move from one coach to another whilst the train was in motion. In 1869 the LNWR built a pair of saloons for the use of Queen Victoria; these had six-wheel underframes, and the gangway was fitted to only one end of each coach. The Queen preferred to wait until the train had stopped before using the gangway.show more
