Two Compartment Brake Third
Six Wheeled Coach

  PROTOTYPE. Most of the pre grouping railway companies built six wheeled coaches to similar designs. Many continued in service on branch lines until the 1950's and others were converted for engineers department use.

  This kit is based on a Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway prototype chosen because it is very similar in appearance to coaches owned by most of the pre grouping companies. Many Modellers will be happy to paint it in their chosen railways livery.

  The two compartment brake coach is particularly suitable for a rural branch line train as the larger van section would not only provide comfortable accommodation for the guard but also ample room for parcels, baskets of fruit and other bucolic goods that the locals wanted taking to the junction.

  KIT. The main components are etched in brass, with cast whitemetal axleguards etc. A pre-rolled brass roof and etched door and grab handles are provided. As is straight brass wire and rod for handrails etc.

  A full colour printed interior kit is included to enable you to make up compartment partitions complete with pictures and mirrors and upholstered seats for your potential passengers.
