BR Coaches Corporate Era 1968-1982

British Rail corporate Blue & Grey, Eras 6-7

A pack of 2 of Bachmanns' detailed models of the BR Mk.2A first class brake coaches painted in the all-over blue scheme applied to vehicles in use with the engineering departments. These two are finished as HST barrier vehicles, used to allow conventional stock and locomotives to be coupled to HST coaches, which have centre couplers only. Mk.2 stock was provided with both centre couplers and conventional side buffers as fitted to locomotives. Guards' brake coaches were usually chosen for use as barrier coaches as both a guards office and hand brake for securing the train in sidings were already fitted.

Bachmann Branchline 39-765 00 Gauge BR Mk.1 POT Post Offiice TPO Stowage Van TPO Red Livery

Travelling Post Office trains were formed with two special types of vehicles, designed to ensure the secure transport of the mail and sorting while on the move.
The obvious sorting vans, type POS (for Sorting) have already been produced by Bachmann. This model is of the other type, the stowage van, originally known to the post office as a Tender, hence the POT designation. The introduction of this model allows model TPO trains to be formed up with an appropriate selection of vehicles comprising sorting, stowage and parcels vans in matching liveries.

The POT stowage vans were used to provide for the secure storage of mail in sacks. Initially the vans would be loaded with unsorted mail, but steady progress in the sorting van would fill sacks and full sacks of sorted mail would be moved to the stowage van ready for delivery.
The coaches had wide doorways with recesses on each side. Originally these would have accomodated the arms for dropping mail from the moving train. Using the side doors on the stowage van was preferable as the inrush of cold air would not then affect the majority of the crew in the sorting vehicles.

This model is painted in the Travelling Post Office red livery.
Era 8-9 1982 onwards. Matches sorting vans 39-430 & 39-435 and parcels vans 39-181, 39-200, 39-201 & 39-275

These car carrying vehicles were converted from BR Mk.1 coaches to provide car-carrying flat wagons suitable for service at express train speeds. British Rail used these vehicles, which were in effect open carriage trucks, to offer car carrying service on several major long-distance routes, often allied to overnight sleeper trains.

The branding of rolling stock used on internal services within Scotland was one of the first examples of sector individuality under British Rail. The use of the ScotRail brand provided a good identification and marketing tool for the scenic highland routes, which attracted significant tourist tarffic.
During the early 1980s the fleet of BR mark 1 coaches provided the backbone of non-express services and this type of coach was standard on the highland line routes. This pack provides two coaches and the basic core for a train formation to the farthest reaches of the British Rail network, where 2-coach and even mixed trains with goods wagons and passenger coaches remained common in the 1980s.
Typical traction on these routes included class 25, 26, 27, 37 and 37/4 locomotives. Era 8. 1982-1994

Bachmann Branchline OO Gauge 39-250A BR RFO Restaurant First Open Coach BR Blue & Grey Livery

When the mark 1 coach fleet was being planned there a return to pre-WW2 on-train dining requirements was anticipated and a number of coaches were built to provide seating capacity for diners. These coaches generally had fewer seats than the standard first and standard class designs, making space for waiters to move easily along the car.

This model recreates one of the first class dining saloon coaches, codes RFO, as running in the corporate blue and grey livery of the 1970s, when a few of these cars were still used on premier services and often found on race day specials.

A highly detailed model of the British railways Mk.1 series post office sorting vans, built in the 1950s to re-equip the Royal Mail travelling post office trains.

This model represents the Travelling Post Office coaches from the corporate era of British Rail, painted in the standard blue and grey livery. This is the plain side of the coach, the sorting pigeon-holes were on this side of the coach.
Note the red painted late posting box in the side of the coach. Members of the public could post mail for the destinations served by the travelling post office train up until the time of departure at an extra charge. Latterly it seems this service was used mainly by enthusiasts collecting the special TPO cancel stamp.

New and detailed models of the BR air conditioned express passenger stock built from the early 1970s. BR was one of the first European railways to offer air conditioned accommodation as standard on principal services.

These models are of the Mk.2F coaches, the last of the Mk.2 series build (1973-1975) and almost identical to preceding Mk.2E coaches (1972-73 build), the design changes relating primarily to the air conditioning plant. These two builds formed the backbone of the InterCity locomotive-hauled coach fleet during the 1970s and 80s.

This model of the first class buffet coach recreates a coach converted in the late 1980s to replace the Mk.1 buffet cars and still in service. Painted in the BR corporate blue and grey livery. Fitted with interior lighting

Oxford Rail OR763FO001 OO Gauge BR Mk 3a First Class Coach FO BR Blue & Grey Livery M11052

A new and superbly detailed model of the British Rail mark 3 coach, a design initiated with the HST programme with later builds to the same designs for the electrified West Coast route. These locomotive hauled coaches were classed mark 3a and were fitted with side buffers (the obvious external difference!) and single-phase electric train heating equipment suitable for locomotive haulage.

Initially allocated to West Coast Main Line services from London Euston along with class 86 and 87 locomotives the mk3a fleet was later deployed with class 90 locomotives and driving trailers in 'push-pull' mode on London to Birmingham and Liverpool/Manchester services. The coaches have seen use across many parts of the network, with the spare sets from weekday services often being employed on summer Saturday services to the West Country and many remain in use today.
Each model comes with a finely detailed exterior plus correct interior seating for the class, which is fully painted. NEM coupling pockets, fully detailed coach ends, connectors and detailed service pod arrangements for the relevant coach.

The coaches will be produced over time as part of a correctly numbered series of coaches. Each coach being based at the same depot and being found in a typical service during the period the livery covers. So you can build up a full train service.

A Closed Cover Truck (CCT) was a type of goods van used for transporting goods whilst keeping them protected from the wind and rain. Along with side doors, CCTs also featured opening ends which allowed them to be used to transport motor vehicles as well as parcel traffic. 37ft. 6 in. long vans were initially built by LNER in 1939 and featured three large sliding doors on each side making access extremely easy. The design was successful enough that BR built a further batch of wagons in 1950.

British Rail's new corporate image liveries were developed in the mid-1960's. The familiar rail blue locomotives with blue and grey passenger coach livery, along with the InterCity express train marketing brand, became the standard livery from 1967.
In the mid-1980's brightly coloured sector liveries began to appear, with principal expresses gaining a distinctive InterCity livery, while Network South East formed a coherent image for the commuter belt.
The corporate style blue & grey livery has returned to use in the 2000s as heritage railways and mainline tour sets have been painted to match blue-painted preserved diesel locomotives.
