Metro-Cammell

Met-Camm produced a fabulous brochure about their forthcoming trains, the cover of which can be seen on the left, with some sample pages on the right and the two below.

As can be seen, the brochure featured plans of the two set variants, details of the equipment used, and some wonderful artwork.

J. Stone

One of the suppliers of parts for the sets - J. Stone & Co. (Deptford) Ltd. - also published a 12 page brochure, 'Equipment for British Railways New Diesel Pullman Trains', describing the equipment supplied by the company for the vehicles. It described the auxiliary power supply and distribution gear, complete air-conditioning and lighting installations, inter-coach electric couplings, speedometers and distance counters, and the track speed controls used in conjunction with the special braking. Samples can be seen below left and right.
