The history of the unpowered half of the M.E.R’s passenger vehicle fleet is complicated, as there have been withdrawls, scrappings, replacements, conversions and several renumberings.
The Motors are numbered mainly in order of construction, however this doesn’t apply to the Trailers. As they have always followed on from the highest numbered Motor. This changed several times between 1893 and 1906, and some Trailers have carried several numbers as they were renumbered almost yearly to allow for new arrivals. Some were even converted into Motors!
The Trailers are listed here in build date order – please click on each number for more information about that Trailer.
