N.B.R. Coaches

The first THREE of the North British Railway 8-wheel suburban coaches designed by Holmes (Luggage Composite, 8-Compartment Third and 7-Compartment First) are now AVAILABLE and will be supplied with injection moulded roofs, wheels, seating, sprung buffers and glazing inside a box large enough to store the completed model - Kits are currently priced at 190GBP including UK postage.

The 6-wheel coaches originally sold as 'scratch building aids' have been temporarily withdrawn in order that I can rebrand them as complete coach kits of a standard similar to the longer 8-wheelers. For those who have bought these etches in the past, most components required to complete the coaches are available separately, including the correct size (4ft) Mansell wheels.

The range of 6-wheel coaches will be re-launched (March 2019) with an entirely new kit for the 'Scotsman' Passenger Brake Van - orders are now being taken.
