Should the Autocoaches be included here? Or are they a separate category?
- I think they count, though perhaps with a separate heading. --Danny252 (talk) 08:00, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
- I think they should definitely be listed here although I have mixed feeling whether or not they should be under a separate heading. Boldford (talk) 17:53, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
- I think they belong here with no need for a separate heading. I'm not so sure about the 5 DMU cars though. They're not diesel locomotives and they're not exactly carriages, so it's either a separate heading on this page, or a page to themselves linked from the List of rolling stock page. Any preferences or other suggestions? --Graham Phillips 110 (talk) 00:08, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
- In the absence of further comment, I've gone with the last suggestions, ie added the auto coaches as carriages and added a link to the DMU page from the rolling stock page.--Robin (talk) 23:51, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
- I was going by the information on www.bloodandcustard.net "The official Railways Executive designation was Crimson Lake - British Standard colour reference BS381C colour no.540 ‘crimson’."
- Assuming this source is reliable, all occurrences of 'carmine' should be changed to 'crimson' and perhaps an explanation added on the page.

I've added 2 LMS coaches which are in the last Stock Book I have and are also in the VCT database as being still at the SVR. Please update or delete if info is incorrect. --Robin (talk) 22:34, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
- Amended, now only added one as the other was a duplicate under a different number
Robin's note reminded me: I realised the other week that the railway's GWR Siphon G wasn't listed anywhere - but wasn't sure where to put it. I filed it under Goods Wagons but as NPCCS it should probably be on this page. For that matter, how many Siphon Gs do we have? --WillSalt (talk) 18:12, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
- Siphon Gs, like GUV's (and some fruit vans!), appear in both the VCT Carriage survey and Wagon Survey so on that basis they could be either. I'd be just as happy to move the GUVs to the Wagons page and change the note accordingly. Even TPOs are technically vans, come to that. Maybe carriages should be defined as those primarily carrying (paying) passengers? Or maybe have a separate category on this page for non-passenger carrying NPCCS? Thoughts welcome...
- VCT Wagon survey says 2 Siphon Gs, 1257 and 2926.
Tom Ferris on Twitter 11 June 2017 says: "The Severn Valley Limited set now includes the superbly restored LMS Open First in use as a diner." I'm not sure what the current set S make up is?--Patrick Hearn (talk) 22:01, 11 June 2017 (UTC)
I've listed the Santa's Grotto Post Office Sorting Vans, 80328 & 80329, as Post Office Red and 80300 at The Engine House as Royal Mail Maroon. I think they may actually all be maroon, can anyone confirm?
