R40058A Hornby 4 wheel 3rd 1505 in GNR lined teak. 2021 new tooling
GNR 4 Wheel 3rd Class Coach number 1505 in GNR Teak livery - Era 2.
This four wheeled coach is a representation of the many which served on the Great Northern Railway (GNR) in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Four wheeled coaches proved especially good at branch line work where their small size enabled the traversing of tight radius curves, whilst lower passenger numbers meant their small size was more acceptable and enabled trains to be hauled by smaller engines.
This GNR coach is modelled as having step boards to enable access at stations with low platforms and gas lighting.
Coaches are designed for easy body removal to allow simple fitting of coach lighting unit. No soldering is required.
