}}The BR Mark 1 Corridor Second (SK) was the most prolific of the Mark 1 passenger stock, with more than 2,200 built. Those in the Western and Southern regions seated eight per compartment, while those on Midland and Eastern routes seated six per compartment. Early examples featured veneered walls, while later batches used formica laminates. The SKs were an early candidate for withdrawal, being replaced by Mark 2 Open, HST sets and Networker Turbo units<ref name = StockBook>SVR Stock Book 9th edition</ref><ref name = SVRCT>SVR Charitable Trust</ref>.
