This range was used on the Darjeeling & Himalayan railway from 1889. The railway was built to enable easier access to the coolness of the hills and also to transport tea and is still working today These coaches have been supplied to complement the Roundhouse ‘B’ class loco and other scale type loco’s. These kits are inspired by and are not a scale model of the real thing. The coach kits have been designed to make the building of fully panelled wooden coaching stock much easier than in the past, and much less time consuming to construct. The coach sides and ends being supplied with the details ready machined in two very accurate layers. This has been made possible by the use of sophisticated, computer controlled routing machines that have done all the hard work for you! No special tools or skills are required for assembly; it is just as easy to build as a conventional wooden coach and can be finished in either paint or varnish.
The kit includes everything you need to construct the coach except for glue, paint or varnish. Door handles are included, and the kit comes with comprehensive illustrated instructions.
