Wartime ambulance carriage in No 19 (C) Shop, 1915 Featured First World War Print

Wartime ambulance carriage in No 19 (C) Shop, 1915

This image shows carriage No. 9024, an ex-invalid coach, suspended in the Carriage Lifting Shop at Swindon Works. The date is March 1915 and the carriage is being converted into a military ambulance train for service in the First World War. A red cross can be seen on the side of the vehicle and another cross would have been painted on the roof. It is also noted that the carriage is fitted with a Westinghouse brake system, in addition to a vacuum brake. This was an essential fitting and allowed the carriage to run over any railway in the country
