N.B.R. Coaches


These North British Railway 6-wheel coaches were originally sold as 'scratch Building Aids' but I am in the process of rebranding them so as to be able to offer full kits. Most components required to complete the coaches are available separately (or will be in due course). Please note that these items are currently sold as 12" x 18" brass sheets.

I am looking into the possibility of developing some North British Railway 8-wheel suburban coaches as designed by Holmes (49' 8.5"). Whilst I am not looking for deposits at this stage, a 'Note of Interest' would be appreciated by clicking on the appropriate link below. A decision on which coaches are potentially viable will subsequently be made on the basis of the feedback received.

CNB1
5-compartment 1st (Drawing 60C) built from the CNB1 etch (with the exception of the roof support trusses which have not been fitted). In order to complete the coaches you will also need to purchase Slaters 3'7" Mansell wheels, Connoisseur Models 6-wheel suspension units, buffers (possibly available from 62C), glazing material, seating material, door handles, westinghouse brake pipes (62C Models), gas lamps for the roof (these will be available form 62C Models in the near future), a gas control valve and 0.7mm wire. The etch does not include a roof but I hope to offer styrene roofs if there is any demand. Alternatively, a pre-profiled solid wood roof moulding is available for 5GBP (please inquire for details).
