The passenger brake coach was a standard coach design going back to the early days of railways. This enabled a railway company to provide multi-class passenger accommodation in a single vehicle and so reduce costs in the company's overall rolling stock needs.

There were are a number of different variations which included corridor and passenger brake. This coach is referred to as a BR Hawksworth which came into service pre 1954. As the name suggests, this coach was named after its designer. These coaches had a distinctive roof design which offered both a streamline look whilst incorporating many new safety features and ventilation!
