A detailed model of the GWR style auto trailer coaches built by British Railways for use with class 14xx, 64xx and 4575 locomotives in push-pull trains. These coaches were constructed on 63ft underframes and given GWR series diagram numbers A38 and A40. The body followed the traditional GWR design with a three-window bowed front end, providing the driver with a good view of the line ahead when the coach was being propelled. Body construction was updated in style, with more modern smooth sides.
The models' detailed underframe includes suspended steps and representation of front end cab control apparatus along with a host of features such as bogies fitted with all axle phosphor bronze (low friction) bearings. The bodyshell features a detailed passenger interior and roof detail includes individually fitted GWR style shell vents. To cap off these great models, we have incorporated prototypical length buffers and buffer beam detailing accessories.
Model painted in the BR crimson and cream livery, usually reserved for express passenger trains but often applied to these auto trailers at partisan GWR workshops, despite orders to desist from the Railway Executive! Era 4 1948-1956.
