Product Highlight: N Scale BR Mark 1 Coaches

The Graham Farish range of N Scale models were the focus of our recent Summer British Railway Announcements and much like with the real British Railways, the Mark 1 Coach made up a significant proportion of the fleet.

Our Mark 1 Coaches are fitted with several impressive details despite the small scale of the models. There are ventilators and handrails on the roofs, footboards along the solebars, hinges and handles on the doors, and visible ventilator slides on the windows. There is also a full complement of equipment on the undersides, and each coach has been mounted on the appropriate type of bogie with metal wheels. Beyond these impressive details, these coaches all share the following common features:

  • NEM Coupling Pockets
  • Close Coupling Mechanism
  • Accessory Pack
