Introduction
Now, more than 35 years since the last coach was slipped from the rear of a British main line railway train, it is surely time for some connected account to be written about this century-long phenomenon, before records of its use and frequency vanish from libraries and archives as the paper on which they were printed crumbles away. One essential source of information is the published timetables of railways, whose earliest copies are now beginning to moulder. Even the British Library no longer has copies of Bradshaw's Guide in unbroken sequence right back to the beginning, and it is too much to expect that those which do remain should be put on microfilm at great expense and potted instead of being put on shelves, there to blush unseen (if the metaphor be not inapt) since few would ever want to consult them.
