5″ SR Brake Van

Stock code L051077

Here we have a very unusual 5″ gauge Southern railway continental Wagon Lit London-Paris Guards Van.  They were either painted blue or dark green and used on the Golden Arrow services and the Night ferry trains from London to Dover, and a usual train was made up of perhaps six sleeping cars with three or four special luggage vans and one of these special brake vans.  It’s a really nice model, with loads of scale detailing.  Cosmetically it’s a little on the scruffy side here n there through use at GL5 running events, and we found that it tended to bob a little on one end, which we remedied with a lump of metal inside to give it a little weight and stability.  It’s a unique model as far as we are aware.
