For many years I have accumulated information on Gresley GNR and LNER carriages. I have on occassion uploaded some of these to help modellers on both WT, LNER Encyclopedia and RMWeb. A recent attempt to help @Heather Kay highlighted the potential of me creating a single point of reference that I could use to upload drawings or photos as I deem appropriate for general reference. I have a few items almost ready to go but need to spend a lot more time on some of the other areas of interest. As people ask questions in other threads I will add to this reference collection when I can. The net result however is that entries are likely to be in a relatively random sequence but at least there will only be one topic to look through. There are time when I will refer to elements of coaches by there common LNER name so to avoid confusion these are the terms I will try and keep to: To kick off, so to speak, I will start with some basic vertical dimensions. Every time I start a new 3D model or cad drawing I have to establish the vertical heights of all the beading, windows, cornice etc. Trying to read these from GAs can get very confusing and difficult to make out. Part of the confusion is that there are two types of "standard" carriage, those where the body rests on rubber pads between it and the underframe and those that don't and sit directly on the underframe: Where a carriage is "padded" the lower edge of the body has a scalloped edge and you can see the gap between the solebars and body (and occassionally the pads): Whereas the unpadded version has a plane bottomside and no gap : Where India Rubber pads are used they look like this (apologies for poor quality): Edit: Height diagram replaced to make it easier to read.
