Description

The earliest railway carriages all had compartments. Open plan carriages were introduced in 1874, in Pullman cars, although many passengers preferred the privacy of a carriage. By the 1930s the railway companies were starting to adopt open plan carriages, although the Great Western railway preferred to keep its compartments. Models posed for this photograph, which was taken for publicity purposes.
