A Brief History

HAL stood for half lavatory, which did not mean the w.c.s were shared, or that they failed cleanliness testing. They were so called because only one car in each unit carried a lavatory, which does not quite match up to standard current Trans Pennine stock, where two cars out of three carry a toilet, though the chances of them both working are not all that good! The HAL stock started life on services to Kent out of London Victoria, but were later largely transferred to services out of Waterloo. Your writer recalls that they were extremely comfortable, the compartments having ornate mirrors as well as framed prints of places and historic buildings served by the network. They carried Ladies Only compartments which your writer's mother used to like to travel in, much to the discomfort of her maturing sons! The doors had leather straps which opened the windows as you could only open the doors from the outside. And woe-betide any passenger who was a little slow at the station! There was a muffled ding of the bell, and the train was off in an instant!
