I am accepting expressions of interest for a complete set of etched parts including underframe, bogies, ends, gangways and roof to produce early CIE Bredin MK2 coaching stock. SSM or Dart Castings may be able to source suitable detail castings. At this stage there has been sufficient enquiries to proceed with the development of a standard underframe, end and gangways kit for these coaches.

These vans were converted in the late 1970s from side corridor coaching stock dating from the early 1950s, fitted with a steam heating boiler and a generator for train lighting. The vans were used mainly on Outer Suburban and passenger services on secondary lines.


The overlays are priced at $53NZ + $10 shipping. Approx. £22 stg. + £4.50.
