Product Description
North Staffordshire Railway 4 wheel early 1880s Brake Third carriage body in 4mm scale. All the detail is scaled precisely from drawings, photographs, and the remains of a carriage recovered in 2014 for restoration as the "Accessible Brake Coach" project, part of the Knotty Heritage Train (http://www.knottycoachtrust.org.uk/) However it scales as 24 feet long whereas the original was about 25 feet, this is so it fits a readily available 00 chassis.

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. 

For the interior seating a separate 3D print is available to fit neatly inside. 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 as they have to be 1mm thick to print.

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 307, which was built at Stoke Works in 1882 and later became NSR 0307 and then LMS 014739 (duplicate list numbers prefixed 0). A few of these carriages survived into LMS days in the early 1920s on workmen's trains, but most were withdrawn before 1910.
