Product Description
Carriage 104 is a declasified composite saloon from the Centenary stock series built in 1964 by FR Co. at Boston Lodge. This was the prototype for the Centenary stock and was originally numbered 24 when new. It was renumbered 104 in 1967. The general design was similar to that of Carriage NO.14This was the first saloon fitted with ex-Pullman seats. The body was built in Birkenhead and was delivered to Boston Lodge, in sections, in early March 1964. The body was assembled during May and the carriage entered service on 25 August, in varnished teak livery. It received bogies from the old Van 3 after reconditioning. In 1985 104 was rebuilt with the Pullman seats being removed and a side corridor compartment for First Class being provided. At around the same time the louvre windows were replaced by drop windows, with ventilators above, and the frieze rail between the toplight and the main window as removed between the drop windows. The new larger main windows were fitted in rubber mounts with rounded corners. In early 2013 104 was partially rebuilt back toward its original form, with new main windows with square corners. However the frieze rails and separate toplights have not been reinstated, so it does not as yet quite match the other three Centenary saloons (105, 106 & 107) or the Super Barns. During early 2010 Carriage 104 was given an overhaul involving replacing the panelling on the engine side of the carriage and giving the whole carriage a fresh coat of varnish. Over the winter of 2016/17 alongside the other corridor composites, the first class was downgraded. The seats remained as before but the door was removed from the compartment and the first stickers removed from the windows. It is planned that the compartment will be removed when possible. Carriage 106 is a declassified composite saloon from the Centenary stock series built in 1968 by FR Co. at Boston Lodge In the 1960s the Festiniog Railway began construction of a series of modern wooden bodied coaches at Boston Lodge. The kinetic profile was based on that of the restored former Lynton and Barnstaple Carriage NO.14  As a result these coaches are known on the railway as "The Barns". Constructed in 1968, with an original design life of only 10 years, at the age of more than 30 years this veteran was showing advanced signs of age, and so was completely rebodied in 2002. The new body is identical to that on Carriage 107 Over the winter of 2016/17, alongside the other corridor composites, the first class was downgraded. The seats remained as before but the doors were removed from the compartment and the first stickers removed from the windows. It is planned that the compartment will be removed when possible. Carriage 107 is a declassified composite saloon from the Centenary stock series built in 2004/5 at Boston Lodge In the 1960s the Festiniog Railway began construction of a series of modern wooden bodied coaches at Boston Lodge. The profile was based on that of the restored former Lynton and Barnstaple Carriage NO.14 As a result these coaches are known on the railway as "The Barns". With a requirement for more carriages, in 2004 construction began of two new coaches to a similar design of which this was the first one in service.

This carriage started out as a rebuild of derelict Carriage 106 entirely by volunteers. Funding became available to finish this off with paid labour. A donor offered the funds for a new underframe (to be built by works staff) so the volunteers carried on building the new body whilst the paid staff built the replacement body for 106. Subsequently funds were raised for new bogies (to the Steve Coulson modified metacone design) and so the FR got a new carriage entirely for free. During April 2009, the carriage visited the carriage works for a touch up and varnish. The seats were also varnished at the same time. Over the winter of 2016/17, alongside the other corridor composites, the first class was downgraded. The seats remained as before but the doors were removed from the compartment and the first stickers removed from the windows. This model is 1:76/009 scale and fits The Peco Lynton & Barnstaple Coach Bogies (pair). Complete with wheels and couplings. and can negotiate tight radius curves up to 12 inches. The model also requires painting, window glazing and your spare time to complete.
