Darstaed Finescale BR Mk 1 suburbans from Ellis Clark

One of the recently announced Set A packs of Darstaed Finescale O-gauge BR 57ft suburban coaches comprising two brake seconds (BS), a single second (S) class and a composite with lavatory (CL) is expected during the first quarter of this year, and is available to pre-order at £665 from Ellis Clark Trains of Skipton, North Yorkshire.  

This is a T1 sample of the Darstaed BR 57ft brake second in lined maroon.

This pack of coaches is based on a prototypical set-up seen regularly during the British Railways era, and makes a perfect starting base for adding more single coaches at a later date.

Single coaches also ready to order are a composite first/third with corridor; a first/third composite with corridor and lavatory (CL); a brake second with second-class compartments and a brake end (BS); an open second (SO); an open second with lavatory (SLO); and a second with compartments (S). Each will be available at £169. 

For those who prefer blue, this is what the second class open coach looks like in that livery.

The coaches will be available in maroon (lined and unlined), crimson and blue.

To pre-order or find out more, please contact Ellis Clark Trains, Unit 1, Toller Court, Shortbank Road, Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 2HG.
