The earliest carriages of the London & Birmingham Railway are our choice for launching the company. It seems ‘grass green’ was the livery and with only a few coloured illustrations available, the actual shade of green is open to debate! The livery would have been hand mixed according to a recipe and would have faded with time so the illustrations shown below are our ‘educated guess’. If you could travel back in time, we suspect you’d see various shades of green on show; newly painted green and faded green, and various shades mixed by different people.


Following our experience with the first two carriages we produced, the Open 2nd Class and Open 3rd Class, we found that various grades of plastic are more than strong enough for the underframes for these. Subsequently, the underframes for the first and mail carriages, originally of brass, have been redesigned in plastic with the finer parts of etched brass. This minimises any soldering.   All other carraiges are many of plastic with minimal or no etched brass/soldering
