Product Description

Ex Metropolitan Railway 8 wheel coaches(late condition)



Composite coach version




When the Metropolitan Railway required coaches , having fallen out with the GWR, it introduced its own very similar 8 wheel(non bogie) coaches. The first 92 had square topped doors, but after that doors were round topped.

With modernisation into the 20th century, some of these 8 wheelers were extensively rebuilt into bogie coaches, and most of the rest had minor modifications . However many were sold off , including a batch to a French railway, which actually ran up till 1964, and some to the Isle of Wight Railway. 


In France they were used on the Bordeaux-Lacanau- Lacanau Ocean and the Lacanau-Facture lines( S.E, for its Reseau des Landes de Gironde).


AB151-AB154 with 3 first and 4 second class comps. (ex Met Composite)


AB171-AB172 with 2 first and four 2nd class compartments (based on Met all third)


C331 with 8 third class comps. (Met all third)


Cf631-Cf639 8 third class compartments for 79 people (Met Short Brake)


In later years some , if not all beading on lower panels was removed, based on photots.


This is a complete body and chassis. Some may wish to fit bogies, but alternatively, unflanged wheels could be fitted to the middle pair of axles. It still might be necessary to make the other wheels swiffle a bit.





Requires finishing and wheels added.


Gauge 1 (1/32)
