MK1 Coaches

Our 5" gauge models of the BR Mark 1 coach are based on Mark 1 coaches that were introduced by British Railway around 1951.

Two styles are available - a corridor compartment coach body and a compartment brake coach body.

The bodies are constructed as a one piece fibreglass moulding with reinforcement in the roof and bulkheads across the width to give adequate passenger carrying capabilities when used with foot boards.

The chassis is a steel fabrication mounted on a pair of detailed BR1 style bogies.

These coaches are suitable for use as a driving truck and / or carrying extra batteries. They can be used without footboards to provide a realistic train for a wide range of steam and modern image locomotives.

Available as unpainted body mouldings and raw castings, unpainted fully machined components or ready-to-run fully painted coaches in a wide choice of liveries both prototypical and to customers requirements.

They can also be fitted with B4 bogies.
