This type of carriage was the most numerous vehicle produced by the North Eastern Railway (NER). Approximately 1000 examples of this type of carriage were produced from the mid 1880’s until 1895. A drawing of this vehicle exists at the National Railway Museum (LNER drawing 1829D, formerly NER drawing 68a). This drawing was referred to during the design of this model. Originally, the livery would have been NER maroon with yellow lining. Roofs were white when new.
The design of this model features a detachable roof.
A difficult and tedious task encountered when modelling rolling stock is the preparation and cutting out of the windows, droplights and panels.
This kit reduces the tedium, complication and labour associated with the construction of a detailed model of a coach body using accurate laser cut layers conveniently assembled in our SmartFrame without specialist knowledge to give the same quality, or better, as traditional methods using plastic or etched components.
There are four precisely alligned layers for the coach sides which reproduce window apertures, droplights, window frames, panelling, and beading. Floor, partitions, roof members, ends complete with steps and panelling are included together with pre-cut glazing. In summary, all the essentials to make a convincing representation of this early panelled coach body.
