Four wheel carriages
These coaches were built by the NLR in batches between 1880 and 1891, most lasting to become LNWR and eventually LMS property, with many still working into the mid 1930’s. A substantial number of all types were sold out of service to companies as diverse as the M&GN, NSR, GNoSR, GW, Cambrian, LBSCR, L&Y, NBR, MSLR, MC, LTSR, Isle of Wight, IoW Central, KESR, Etc.
The First and Third Class coaches were both 28′ 0″ long with five compartments. The First class had partitions between compartments, while the Thirds were open plan. The Birdcage brakes were 18′ 8″ and provided a guards compartment and luggage facilities only. They were always marshalled at the ends of the fixed rakes.The kits include, etched sides, ends floors and underframes. Designed with compensation built in, the underframes incorporate a highly detailed representation of the clasp brake system used on these coaches.
