Product Description
North Staffordshire Railway 4 wheel early 1880s Passenger Brake Van body in 4mm scale. All the detail is scaled precisely from drawings, photographs, and the remains of a similar Brake Third carriage recovered in 2014 for restoration as the Accessible Brake Coach project, part of the Knotty Heritage Train (http://www.knottycoachtrust.org.uk/).

It is a clip fit to a GWR Toad Brake Van chassis (not supplied) manufactured by Airfix, Dapol and latterly Hornby, of which examples are widely available secondhand or the underframe moulding can be purchased as a spare. This proprietary chassis has the correct wheelbase, buffers and lower steps. Upper steps will need to be added. Although the wheel diameter, W irons and springs will not look NSR, it does make a very quick and easy unusual carriage. Alternatively a scale 15ft wheelbase underframe could be constructed, and it is hoped to make a 3D printed one available shortly. 

To finish the model will require a cleaning and degrease (ultrasonic cleaner recommended) a light sanding of the roof on very flat, very fine wet-and-dry paper, and the fitting of glazing after painting. The body will need door handles, grab handles and curved end handrails adding as these are not moulded on. The end steps could be thinned down slightly with a file.

Livery was originally the very attractive NSR Victoria Brown with white panels, later changed to NSR Madder Lake (similar to MR/LMS crimson lake). A suitable number for this carriage is 78, which was built at Stoke Works in 1883 and later became NSR 078 and then LMS 06008 (duplicate list numbers prefixed 0), by which time it had become a Stores Van. Its withdrawal date is not recorded.
