Does anyone know of a current source of passenger coaches that would¬*be reasonably compatible with this great locomotive?¬*

Yes, there are three or four makers of suitable coaches for this model.


The G1 newsletter contains all of them, and as I am presently in Cannon Beach Oregon, I can't give you the details - no doubt Mr Pullen will fill in the details.¬* Depending on the era you wish to portray, the wonderful teak LNER coaches from one company will set you back in the region of $1800-2000 per unit, while an economy coach in blood and custard BR scheme will set you back around $600-800.¬*


I understand that David Leach has hung up his tools pro tem, but Alan Wright in Ontario may also be in the running for a moderatley-priced coach - peraps around $700 or so.


The full pre-war FS train consist was usually 11 or 12 coaches, by the way.

beautiful, makes me wish I could afford to model that railroad as well. Is it steam or electric?

The present Accucraft [UK] model is electric.¬* The Aster model is live-steam.¬* It may well be that Accucraft [UK] will produce a live steam version at a later date.

Tac,
Thank you for mentioning our coaches. We are able to offer two coach designs that are suitable for the Flying Scotsman. Gresley Tourist Class coaches and Thompson coaches. Both ran in LNER and BR days.
We have also added GWR Collett coaches to list of designs.

Happy to oblige, Alan!¬* I know good stuff when I see it.

Hi All

If you want affordable Br Mark 1 coaches to match the 1/32 scale Accucraft "flying Scotsman " check out¬*¬*¬* www.3d-companions.com.

At less than ¬£200 per coach, but have to be bought as a rake of five of different diagrams. The five are supplied in two storage/carrying boxes and are available for Total of ¬£1000 in the UK.¬* Cheapest on the planet.

Also Check the site for some interesting reference works in virtual computer 3D for the "Br standard "9F" , the Fowler 0-6-0 "4F" , the GWR 0-4-2ST and others.


Best Regards

Francis Leach

PS High Alan Wright and David¬* Leech.¬* I have much respect for the quality of their products. Tis a pity I can not afford them.

Sadly, David Leech has hung up his tools in the recent past, after completing all his many commitments.¬* I was able to see Alan's excellent products at the G1 Diamond Jubilee hooley last June, and can only add my opinion to those of many others there that they represent excellent value for your hard-earned dosh.

Sadly, playing with British-outline trains means digging deeply into your pockets, but like the man said, if you can't afford 'em, please feel free to look.

There never was a cheap Rolls-Royce.

And there will never be a cheap hand-made high-quality passenger car model of a British prototype.
