Mayner Posted April 29, 2015 Share Posted April 29, 2015 (edited) I am trying to establish if there is sufficient interest to add further coach sides to the Buffet & Corridor Second released last year. The illustrations are in green because I was too lazy to draw them in black & tan Originally built 1953 classified as 3rds built to run as railcar trailers 1356-1371 were the first of CIEs family of 64 seat standard open coaches. These coaches were also very close in outline to 1497-1503 some of the last traditional coaches built at Inchacore in the early 1960s. Originally classified as 3rds and introduced in 1953 some of these coaches were converted to driving trailers for use with the AEC railcars on the Westland Row-Galway & Westport "Cu na Mara" express service. One of these coaches was later fitted with storage heaters for use on the Ballina Branch These coaches seem to have originally been introduced with guards look outs, some of which were later plated over, separate frets would be required for coaches with or without lookouts. One of the coaches on the Loughrea Branch not sure of the identity of the photographer Almost modern image introduced in 1978 Brake Steam Generator Van converted from 1953 Side Corridor Coach This fret will be a tad more expensive than the ordinary coaches and a bit more involved to build as the van doors will have be engraved on a separate section of the fret to the sides. I am looking at expressions of interest for a minimum run of 6 of any one type. Edited April 29, 2015 by Mayner Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
