Manufacturer description

This four wheeled coach is a representation of the hundreds which served on the GWR from the Victorian era onwards.


Four wheeled coaches proved especially good at branch line work where their small size enabled the traversing of tight radius curves, whilst lower passenger numbers meant their small size was more acceptable and enabled trains to be hauled by smaller engines.


This GWR coach is modelled as having step boards to enable access at stations with low platforms and gas lighting.


This model also features our new Maglight system which allows coach lights to be turned on and off using a magnetic wand, removing the need for track pick-ups which would increase rolling resistance.
