Mark 1 Loco-Hauled Coaches

Prices per vehicle - 1: £8.00, 2: £12.00, 3: £16.00, 4: £20.00

There is an excellent range of Mark One coaches already available ready to run in N Gauge and Electra's range is intended to plug the gaps, with some much-requested coaches in Blue / Grey and Network SouthEast Liveries.

Designed to convert the Graham Farish Mk1 with the clear bodyshell (not the latest Blue Riband models), with colours that have been carefully selected to match the current Mk1 coaches.

BRE-Leyland Bodied Mk1 Conversion - Coming Soon

Leyland

An experiment by BR in 1982 to extend the life of the Mk1 coach with new bus-style bodywork from Leyland. Coach RDB977091 saw extensive service on Cross-Country services until preservation in 1986. I am still working on the details of this conversion.

 


Mark 1 Train Packs

West Highland Line

A much loved train from the 80s and 90s, these Mark 1s were repainted in LNER "Tourist" Green and Cream and used on the Glasgow - Fort William - Mallaig West Highland Line during the peak summer season. Initially owned and operated by ScotRail, these coaches passed to the Intercity Charter Unit and were based at Bounds Green in London off-season and could be seen anywhere on the BR network.

Individual coaches available for £8.00 each

Sealink Boat Train

These colourful Mark 1 coaches were used on the Glasgow - Stranraer boat train between 1982 and 1986 and could often be seen around the network on specials or relief services.
