N.B.R. Coaches

The 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. They will therefore be temporarily withdrawn once the current stock is sold. For those who have bought the etches in the past, most components required to complete the coaches are now available separately (or will be in due course).

The first of the North British Railway 8-wheel suburban coaches designed by Holmes (Dia 3 non-corridor Luggage Composite) is now well under way and the test build has been completed. Reservations can be made for this coach whilst a 'Note of Interest' on the other coaches would be appreciated by clicking on the appropriate link below in order to decide on which coaches are potentially viable on the basis of the feedback received.
