The LMS inherited some 305,000 good vehicles from its constituent companies. However, many of these needed replacing and the LMS embarked on a huge wagon building program. It looked to a Midland Railway design as its standard open wagon. The first batch of 1,000 wagons was built by the LMS in 1923. A staggering total of 54,450 wagons were built to this design – designated Diagram 1666 by the LMS – up to 1930. There were more Dia. 1666s built than the total number of goods wagons on the Southern Railway! Rapido Trains UK to produce the most numerous LMS wagon... ever!
