The Great North possessed a varied selection of coaches. Those built at Inverurie Works for through services were as good as those found anywhere else, but local trains ran with a mixed collection of 4 and 6 wheelers. A high proportion of coaches survived into L&NER days. Many coach bodies then found new uses on the farms of the north east. It has been possible to identify nearly all the coaches owned by the Company. Full details can be found in the GNSR publications Carriages of the Great North of Scotland Railway, by Keith Fenwick and Carriage Compendium. Both of these are available direct from GNSRA. Many of the surviving coach bodies have been photographed in detail. A selection of these photos is available at
