I'm seeking a single 4 or 6-wheel coach, either complete or body only, possibly in need of a refurb

You can get the 6 wheel cholestery coaches from the Thomas range too.
They are called the "Emily coaches" and are in green and white.
They do not have the moulded nose on the end of the coach to remove which is a horribly messy job.

I guess you want something quick, cheap and easy?
GRS will probably sell you coach sides and ends of various types.
Otherwise walsall do GWR four-wheelers, and Williams do the LNWR six wheelers

Why just one and of unspecified class/type/company?
What is it for...... a "departmental" coach to form part of a breakdown train?

My fellow Members, ask not what your Society can do for you, ask what you can do for your Society.

It's just for a one coach train for a v small indoor layout - bit like the pic here but single coach (though 2 would be nice):

thinking more of a nice wooden body in need of some renovation perhaps. Would consider swap for wagon of brake van kit.

I may have enough off cuts of the annie and clarrabel sides from various cut n shuts that i have done to get enough to do one coach. You would need to make you r own floor ends and roof though.
