From almost the very inception of the LMS Railway, the design and building of coaches followed a very standardised pattern. There were very many types of coaches built to suit the various services and needs but, in general, the progression of design features was a logical one and is not unduly difficult to analyse. Three quite distinct periods of design can be recognised, the last of which continued until after nationalisation.

For a number of reasons it is best to consider the coaches around these three periods, and the main features are noted below summarising the main stages of development of gangwayed stock, remembering that non-corridor stock tended to follow similar phases of development.
