11807RE: Just added some photos of my WW1 themed modules
- Aug 17, 2013In reality the WWI NG railways had very very few passengers wagons/coaches
because wagons need to be multi-purpose - nothing to do with the prevailing
military thinking. Ammunition was the main traffic but there were also
bulky trench and engineer stores in addition to the stuff required to keep
the railway open - stone and railway material.
Personnel (healthy and injured) were fitted around these loads. There was
no way the army/railway could afford to have single use wagons sitting
around requiring space and maintenance let alone armoured passenger wagons.

It is a bit ironic to pull the train with a heavily armored Simplex and then
let the poor troops travel in a very exposed toastrack coach, but this seems
perfectly representative of military thinking at the time..
