Darstaed D24-2-12A Finescale O Gauge BR (Ex-LNER) Thompson Mainline FKL (First Class with Ladies Retiring Room) Coach, Crimson & Cream 'E1328E' (From 'The Elizabethan')
Now in stock and available for immediate dispatch!
This coach is one from the famous 'The Elizabethan' train which ran from King's Cross to Edinburgh in the 1950's.
This particular Thompson is slightly different from the standard stock.
For this coach to run in the Elizabethan train, the coach sides were extended to overlap the solebars creating a 'streamlined' effect, however they did in-fact paint the portion covering the solebar black to match other coaches. The roof ventilators were also changed for the addition of pressure ventilation.
We have available both the full 11-car train and also a small number of the individual coaches which form this full set, of which this particular coach is one.
You can either build up a smaller Elizabethan train by buying individual coaches, or you can purchase the full limited edition 11-car set.
Price: £229 each (or £249 each with roller ball bearings)
3-7 Coaches = £225 each (or £245 each with roller ball bearings)
8+ Coaches = £220 each (or £240 each with roller ball bearings)
