To be honest, we initially made this little coach as something of a joke. The joke was on us as when it was seen being pulled by a little diesel it looked fantastic! Itís just the thing for a little train where the motive power wouldnít be able to pull a huge coach. Itís so full of character.
Made from birch plywood, this freelance four wheeled coach is a sturdy design with real glass for the windows.
Available as either a kit or as a finished model.
Kit: Not too hard to make (but itís definitely not a beginnerís kit), with easy to follow illustrated instructions. Real glass is used for the windows, so this kit isnít suitable for children due to the sharp edges.
32mm / 45mm regaugeable.
Pre-Made: Available in either maroon or green (both have cream panels).
The colours of every coach exactly matches the other coaches in the range (eg the satin finish maroon is identical to all the other coaches and parcel van).
Couplings are fitted in the finished version, but are not included in the kit due to the wide variety in use. Minimum radius is 2í6Ē - probably even less.
Supplied as 32mm or 45mm gauge, the wheels can easily be re-gauged to your railway.
The Parcel & Guard's Van and 2, 3 & 4 Compartment Coaches are of very similar design, intended to make a uniformed train.
