R40077 HORNBY 6 wheel 1st E41373E in BR crimson - Era 4. 2021 new tooling
BR 6 Wheel 1st Class Coach number E41373 in BR Crimson livery - Era 4.
This six wheeled coach is a representation of the many small coaches which survived into British Railway ownership.
Small coaches such as this six wheeled coach 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 BR coach is modelled as having step boards to enable access at stations with low platforms and electric lighting.
Coaches are designed for easy body removal to allow simple fitting of coach lighting unit. No soldering is required.
