Hornby R4966 DRS, Mk2F Standard Open, 5937 - Era 11

Description

The British Railways Standard Mark 2 coach was first introduced in 1963 and the semi-integral construction dispensed with a separate underframe, giving the body greater strength and stiffness than the previous BR Standard Mk.1 stock. Certified for 100mph running, this was later increased to 110mph and the design of the coach evolved over the next ten years, culminating in the Mk.2F design that was built between 1973 and 1975; a stop gap measure produced until the British Rail Mk.3 coach could be introduced into service.

Direct Rail Services' Mk.2F stock was still in use on East Anglian routes until late 2019 when Class 755 units began to take over the routes.
