Description

More books have probably been written on the life and work of OVS Bulleid than likely any other CME from the steam age. His locomotives probably having received more than their fair share of criticism – and praise. Similarly it must not be forgotten that he also designed a considerable amount of passenger rolling stock the most controversial of which were the Tavern / Restaurant sets dating from 1949. Styled internally and to an extent externally in the form of ‘Ye Olde Inn’ and with the Restaurant cars having no windows to discourage diners from lingering after their meal, they courted controversy right from the first day they were presented to an unsuspecting public at Waterloo in May 1949. So were they really as bad as we have been led to believe? This is the first book devoted solely to just ‘eight pairs of carriages’ attempts to find out.

1 review for Mr Bulleid’s Tavern Cars

  1. 5 out of 5

    Anthony Ritson

    A fascinating book about one of the more obscure Southern dining vehicles. I had no idea that so many variations were tried out after the initial cool reception. Nor had I seen pictures of the interiors. I am just too young to have ridden in one when launched. This book is very well researched and highly recommended. A real treat.
