Product Highlight: N Scale BR Mark 2F Coaches

Last modified date

This year’s British Railway Announcements so far have both contained large numbers of N Scale items from the Graham Farish range. We’ve previously looked at the BR Mark 1 Coaches from the Summer announcements, so for this Product Highlight we are going to take the opportunity to have a look at the remaining passenger vehicles that were announced at the same time; the British Railway Mark 2F Coach.

These models accurately represent the shape of the Mark 2 coaches, with streamlined coach ends that are equipped with separately fitted handrails and corner footsteps. There are moulded ventilators on the roof at each end, and the roof also features a moulded toilet roof panel. The doors on the sides of these models feature modelled hinges, handles and bumper details, whilst the windows are flush with the sides of the coach body and feature tinted glazing. On the inside of the coach, there is a fully modelled interior featuring accurate table and chair layouts, with luggage compartment caging in brake vehicles.

Under the solebar, these coaches have braking, electrical and air conditioning equipment. On either side of this equipment, there are bogies that feature NEM coupling pockets and metal wheels. The coaches also come with an accessory pack containing multiple parts that can be fitted for additional detail.
