The earliest carriages of the London & Birmingham Railway and LNWR are our choice for launching the company as both Peter and I are particularly interested in these companies. We shall be concentrating on the early days of the railways.
We shall be expanding our range into other companies. We have noticed that some companies, such as the GWR Broad Gauge and South Eastern and Chatham Railway, have already been covered. A link to both concerns has been included in the ‘Useful Links’ page for anyone interested in these railways.
Please let us know what companies you are interested as this will give us a guide as to what we should do next.
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. Subsequently, the underframes for the First and Mail carriages, originally of brass, has been redesigned in plastic with the finer parts of etched brass. This minimises any soldering. All subsequent carriages are many of plastic with minimal or no etched brass/soldering.
Before being put on sale, the kits are test built a number of times to ensure that your kit goes together with the minimum of trouble. Each kit comes with comprehensive instructions with many photos to illustrate the various stages.
All kits come with a choice of wheel pattern; Brahmah (B), Split Spoke (S), Losh - a fatter sort of split spoke (L), 8 Spoke (8) or 9 Spoke (9). Please contact us by phone or email with your choice of wheel (as we haven’t worked out the best way to do this using PayPal)
Or you may purchase the kit without wheels (not available through PayPal - please phone or email)
