Drawing of Stroudley Slip Brake first as oil-lit

The Branchlines Billintons are available again!

They were built in the mid 1890’s, and were used widely throughout the system, though for some reason, they were not readily caught in photographs - more often being either behind a loco, or some other foreground object.
Gladstone class “Hayling”, when it was involved in the failed bridge incident at Norwood, was pulling a number of these carriages, arranged in groups to be picked up / shed along the route.
