Michelin Railcars

LMS Michelin Coventry Railcar

 

Built as project between LMS, Michelin and Armstrong Siddeley , based on testing of Michelin railcars in Britain. Two supplied in 1935, and run for 2 years. Scrapped by end of WW2. One pneumatic tyre still exists in NRM.

Based on Type 22 Michelin railcar, one of which had been tested in Britain. The new railcars were in effect shortened versions with new engines. Driver position was also moved from central to side position to improve driver visibility when driving in reverse, something that was also changed on subsequent purely Michelin railcars.
