Manufacturer 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. Loram have experience in maintaining track infrastructure and rolling stock worldwide dating back to 1954.


Positioned in Derby, Loram UK and specialises in rolling stock maintenance, refurbishment, overhauls and modifications. In 2020 Loram painted two Mk2 coaches into Loram UK colours in-order to begin expanding into the wider rail operations market.
