GWR K22 Full Break
GWR K22 Full Brake from Worsley Works etchings (00)
Inspired by Robin on A Nod To Brent I decided my fleet lacked a GWR Full Brake. with help from the chaps on ANTB I selected the Worsley Works etched sides and ends for a K22 Toplight.
Edit to say I have had an issue with photo download so this will continue shortly......
Cornish Riveria Formation
GWR Hawksworth coaches pre nationalisation
If it helps, here is the formation of one of the Riviera sets in 1947 as listed in Harris [there were of course two sets]:
Brake Third D131 [Hawksworth] - 838
Third C82 [Hawksworth] - 792
Third C73 [Collett] - 1490
Composite E158 [Collett] - 7327
Composite E155 [Collett] - 6136
Dining car H26 [Collett 70 ft] - 9571
First A22 [Collett] - 8100
Third C82 [Hawksworth] - 800
Brake Third D131 [Hawksworth] 837
-and the Plymouth portion:
Third C82 [Hawksworth] - 803
First A20 [Collett] - 8044
Brake Third D131 [Hawksworth] - 844
One might have thought that nothing but the latest stock was good enough for the Riviera and through most of history this was indeed the case. Before the advent of the BR Mk 1 in the 1950s there was a time when at least one Riviera set was all Hawksworth bar the diner, because there were no Hawksworth diners! No BCKs though, as Adrian said.
