Mark 2 d / e / f Coaches

From the early 1970s a new look Mark 2 coach was introduced, the Mark 2D, which had smaller windows and full air-conditioning. Subsequent batches of Mark 2 E and F coaches were later introduced with more modern interiors and other differences, such as toilet positioning.

Initially used on top-link services on Inter-City routes, these gradually were relegated to cross-country and secondary routes following introduction of the Mark 3 and HST vehicles. Many are still in use providing vital extra capacity in the North-West and Scotland as well as departmental and charter services.
