R40082A HORNBY 6 wheel 3rd 4142 in LNER teak - Era 3. 2021 new tooling
LNER 6 Wheel 3rd Class Coach number 4142 in LNER Teak livery - Era 3.
This six wheeled coach is a representation of the many which served on the London and orth Eastern Railway (LNER) having been inherited form the Great Northern Railway (GNR).
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 LNER coach is modelled as having step boards to enable access at stations with low platforms and oil lamp lighting.
Coaches are designed for easy body removal to allow simple fitting of coach lighting unit. No soldering is required.
