Once private companies took over passenger train operation they wanted to distinguish their trains, both from other operators and the previous British Rail image. Many colourful and distinctive liveries have appeared, forging new brands like GNER and linking together bus and rail operations like First and Stagecoach with identifyable paint schemes.

Oxford Rail OO Gauge OR763FO004 Stobart Rail Mk 3a First Class Coach FO Stobart Blue Livery

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.

Eurostar Class 373 Blue Livery Divisible Centre Saloons Coach Pack - R4580

A Eurostar cutting through the Kent countryside heading for the Continent at 300kph is a wonderful sight to behold yet for those on board the feeling of such speed is minimal. This year sees the familiar grey livery give way to the fresh and striking colours of the new Eurostar trains with their dynamic new paint work and new interiors. The Hornby model replicates this new livery both on the four car pack and the 'Divisible Coaches'.
