LNER Coronation Twin articulated coaches
D229 TwinOpen First - Open First + Open First
Original condition, remove bottom of valances for early BR condition
The train was formed of four two-car articulated units, with the 'beaver-tail' observation car added in summer.
In 1948 they were returned to service as general passenger stock, but they never ran as a full set again - the observation cars were transferred to the West Highland line in 1956.
In BR days the steamlined skirting was removed. The observation cars were again modified in 1959 with larger end windows. Extra door were added to some twin sets to improve access/exit, after a serious accident.
Requires chassis, bogies, wheels etc and finishing off
