Passenger Car DIY Cardboard Model Overview
A passenger car (known as a coach or carriage in the UK, and also known as a bogie in India)is a piece of railway rolling stock that is designed to carry passengers. The term passenger car can also be associated with a sleeping car, baggage, dining, railway post office and prisoner transportcars.
In some countries, such as the UK, some coaching stock (whether designed, converted or adapted) to not carry passengers are referred to as “NPCS” ( non-passenger coaching stock); similarly some maintenance (engineering) stock can be known as “MOW” – maintenance of way – in the US.
Traditionally the passenger car can be split into a number of distinct types. The most basic division is between cars which do carry passengers and “head end” equipment. The latter are run as part of passenger trains, but do not themselves carry passengers. Traditionally they were put between the locomotive and the passenger-carrying cars in the consist, hence the name.
Some specialized types are variants of or combine elements of the most basic types. The basic design of passenger cars is evolving, with articulated units that have shared trucks, with double-decker designs, and with the “low floor” design where the loading area is very close to the ground and slung between the trucks.
