Garter blue...
« on: Feb 21 2021 10:16 »
I don't have a catalogue of "Locomotive Design"... I do know that there are designs for LMS coaches. The madness has got so bad that if I can dave enough to get a Coronation Scot new from Kingscale - it is going need coaches et al.

Qiestion; are the LMS coaches of the correct era that I could paint them Garter Blue with Silver stripes?

Ralph,
The Coronation Scot carriages were standard Stanier pattern coaches with modifications, the principal visual difference being the pressure ventilation ducting along the roof.
The diagram numbers were:

D1902 RFO (first open dining)
D1905 BTK (side corridor bke third)
D1912 RK  (kitchen car)
D1960 FK (side corridor first)
D1961 BFK (side corridor bke first)
D1981 RTO (third open dining)

Regards,
John.

John, thankyou for that! It looks like four 1st class, a 1st class dining, and 1st brake. Have come from another railway system it puzzled me for years that the LMS Stoves wagon did not contain the kitchen for the dining car!

i only know of custom coaches who possibly may make the stanier coaches. they were looking for potential buyers a few years ago and ran some adverts in the newsletter, they were very expensive, but also very exquisite. maybe a couple of our members bought some ???
perhaps a multiple number of enquiries to kingscale could twist jon's arm to do some, as there are a few coronation and duchess runners now, who'd probably welcome those types ???
