Prototype metal-bodied carriages

From Festipedia, hosted by the FR Heritage Group

The Prototype metal-bodied carriages are a group of post-preservation carriages on the F&WHR.


To call this a class is erronous; these are all non-standard prototypes built at different times for various purposes. For more details, please see the individual carriage articles.
