Album Info:Passenger coaches and motor coaches designed for commuter service. The older coaches are being shown here in three groups: those with all wooden bodies, those with sheathed wooden bodies, and the all metal group with hinged doors. With effect from the introduction of the Class 5M motor coaches with sliding doors, coaches and cab coaches were classed the same as their corresponding motor coaches (Class 5M to 10M). The Class 5M series is still in use country wide and first entered service in 1958. The first batch was imported (Class 5M2), and from 1961 onwards the rest were built by Union Carriage & Wagon (Class 5M2A). Having been in service for more than half a century, they have been much modified by now. The result is quite a confusing variety of appearances, especially amongst the motor coaches. In an effort to make sense of it all, I grouped the motor coaches into five types according to their exterior side appearance from front to back, as follows: .....oo....oo..... Type 1: The cab door, a double sliding door, a guard's periscope (often removed during later modifications), 3 windows, another double sliding door, and 2 more windows. .....oo....oo..... Type 2: The cab door, a single sliding door, a guard's periscope (often removed later), 4 windows, a double sliding door, and 2 more windows. .....oo....oo..... Type 3: The cab door, 5 windows, a double sliding door, and 2 more windows. .....oo....oo..... Type 4: The cab door, a double sliding door, 4 windows, another double sliding door, and 2 more windows. .....oo....oo..... Type 5: The cab door, one window, a double sliding door, 3 windows, another double sliding door, and 2 more windows. .....oo....oo..... There are more, but these are usually one-of-a-kind modifications, for example the Cape's Rainbow Commuter, the University on Wheels, etc. Also, even with the new Class 10M motor coaches there are already models with differences in appearance.

SAR Class 10M Motor Coach (Type 1 L)
Title:  SAR Class 10M Motor Coach (Type 1 L)
Description:  Class 10M commuter trains are totally rebuilt on Class 5M frames. Presumably the face on this train set is an early prototype for the Class 10M, with its 1940-ish appearance. The most apparent visual differences from the older wagons are the ribbed sides, the new "face" on the cab ends, and a new numbering system that ends with M for motor coaches and T for standard unmotorised coaches.
