Coaches - British Rail

Representing the BR Corporate & InterCity eras. 1965-1995. During the mid-1960s British Railways was looking for a 'new image'. The end of steam traction was in sight, the second generation high-horsepower diesel locomotives were being delivered and detail design for the modern mark 2 coaching stock was underway. Many innovative ideas were tried out in an experimental set of coaches, along with a new livery of blue with grey window bands, a new name, British Rail and the still familiar double arrows logo.
Twenty years later BRs' InterCity express passenger business unit was looking to refresh its image with a more dynamic livery, resulting in a very pleasing stripe livery which accentuated the length of coaches and impression of speed.
The Southern Railway 4-wheel parcels vans survived until the early 1980s, many receiving BR rail blue paint during overhauls.
Though many of these vans had by then been reduced to departmental duties some were still listed in the revenue service fleet and the departmental vans were often used for distributing BR stores through the network of daily parcels trains.

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 accomodation 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 preceeding 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 InterCity red stripe livery.

A pack of two BR Mk.1 coaches finished in BR blue and grey livery and numbered in the departmental ADB series to match coaches used in the Doncaster works locomotive test train.

Works test train coaches were part of the engineers fleet, though often retaining passenger livery these coaches were not for passenger use but used as a load for controlled testing of overhauled locomotives. The interiors may be unchanged, stripped out or replaced with weights to provide a known load, a newly overhauled locomotives' performance could be checked with a series of controlled test runs before the loco was returned to service. An excellent excuse for an unusual locomotive to turn up 'on test'!

A highly detailed model of the LMS design of engineers inspection saloon car, a type which has had a long life with the national railway network and many now available for hire on heritage railways.
Inspection saloons were used by the divisional civil and signal engineers to make site visits before major engineering projects and to inspect track and structures where local staff had reported developing faults. The two saloons were equipped with end windows for track and signal viewing and large tables allowing drawings and plans to be laid out for discussion. Between the saloons a small kitchen was provided, from which the steward could supply refreshments and even conjure up a full meal if required.

This model carries the British Rail corporate blue & grey livery with yellow ends. Yellow ends were usually applied so the inspection saloon could be propelled to or during a site visit.
