In many cases, the service of the slip coach(es) did not end at the station where they were slipped, but continued on a branch line.

Probably the most famous train with slip coaches was the Cornish Riviera Express, which ran nonstop from London Paddington to Plymouth, dropping three groups of slip coaches.
