Later British Railways Coaches 1957-1968

Era 5 Maroon and Regional liveries.
Bachmann Branchline 39-241 OO Gauge BR Mk1 FO First Open Maroon Livery

An excellent model of the BR Mk.1 design first class open plan seating coach. Many of these coaches were built to provide seating coaches to operate with a kitchen car, while standard first class coaches retained seating compartments. As demand for full meal service declined in the 1960s these coaches were redeployed as general service first class coaches. Businessmen found the tables useful to get some work done while travelling, leading to an increasing acceptance of the open plan seating arrangement for first class accomodation. Era 5

Bachmann Branchline OO Gauge 39-251D BR RFO Restaurant First Open Coach British Railways Maroon 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 late 1950s painted in the maroon livery. These coaches would have been found on the most prestigeous services along with a kitchen car, eg. the Bachmann RU coach providing a full meal service.

After his State Funeral at St. Pauls Cathedral, Sir Winston Churchill’s body was moved by train to Handborough station via train before being taken to St. Martin's parish churchyard in Bladon to be buried. The actual carriage used was Southern Railway luggage van No. 2464. Built in 1931, the carriage had an uneventful life until it was taken out of service in 1961. In 1962 the carriage was repainted into Pullman colours and stored in Stewarts Lane carriage sheds until Churchill’s funeral in 1965.

After its use as part of the funeral train, the carriage was shipped to California where it served as a historical display before returning to the UK for refurbishment at National Railway Museum in Shildon. More recently, the carriage has been moved to Margate, just metres form Hornby’s Margate offices, where it is hoped it will be displayed to the public in the future. This model depicts the funeral carriage as it would have been in 1965 at the time it was used as part of Winston Churchill’s funeral train

All of these coaches are Era 5 models. This era covers the interesting transition from steam to diesel locomotives between 1957 and 1968. British Railways mark 1 coaches predominated on express services with the later pre-nationalisation company designs on secondary services and the first of the new mark 2 coach desgn entering service before the corporate blue and grey livery appeared.
Details of the periods covered by the era numbers can be found here. 

In 1957 British Railways changed the principal paint scheme for passenger coaches to lined maroon, similar to the former Midland/LMS livery. At the same time each region was authorised to reintroduce named expresses and paint coaches in special liveries for these trains. Great Western chocolate and cream quickly reappeared, while the Southern rapidly repainted coaches into green, matching the EMU stock. After testing the scheme in 1964 BR adopted a corporate livery of blue and grey, though the maroon and regional painted vehicles survived in service for several years. However the use of Mk.1 coaches on heritage railways has seen many hundreds of these coaches repainted in Era 5 liveries, including coaches in service today for mainline tour and charter trains.
