A Brief History

The Motor Luggage Vehicles were one of the most quirky concepts invented by the railways, deriving form the requirement for additional luggage space on trains carrying cross-channel passengers from London to the south coast ports particularly Dover and Newhaven. The Southern Region's new stock simply did not have the capacity to carry heavy luggage. The MLVs could work with other units as well as carrying an internal battery for independent movement from the third rail. The opening of the Channel Tunnel and Eurotunnel saw their demise in the mid-1990s, but if you were to travel with your bike from London to Dover today, you'd soon wish they were still in operation
