This pack contains 6 detailed cast resin parts that glue together to enable a quick assembly of the coach body.

This model is based on a design by William Kirtley for the LCDR (later SECR). Kirtley also went on to provide similar vehicles for the Hull & Barnsley Railway. A surviving Hull and Barnsley vehicle is undergoing restoration at Elsecar. These designs provide surprisingly versatile vehicles for small layouts, examples eventually finding their way to unlikely corners of the country. 

Constructed in the mid 1880’s, the H&BR vehicles were unpopular with passengers and eventually sold off. Second hand vehicles found their way to south wales, operating on both the Neath& Brecon Railway and the Cardiff Railway. In a strange twist of fate, these vehicles found themselves as GWR stock after grouping. Others were sold to a colliery line in south shields, and one ended its days in light railway service on the Bishops Castle Railway. Some of the LCDR variants also ended their days in light railway service on lines such as the East Kent Light Railway, whilst others crossed the water to the Isle of Wight. From a modelling perspective they are ideal for smaller rural layouts depicting light railways, but also can serve as mess coaches in works trains or workman's vehicles on industrial layouts.

Chassis kits and pre-formed styrene roof sections to suit this vehicle are available to be purchased separately.
