Development of these carriages dates back to 1882 and the arrival of Dugald Drummond at St. Rollox. The design was closely based on the early stock Drummond produced for the North British. Many of these coaches were still in regular use with the LMS in to the 1930'sMore Information...
Caledonian Railway 30ft Diagram 016 passenger brake vans were originally built as 8ft wide vehicles.
After finding previously unknown details of the prototype that this kit has been based on, it has been found that the body etch for this kit has previously unkown errors. Because of this discovery we are removing this kit from our range until a new body etch has been drawn.
Anyone who has purchased one of these kits and would like details of the inaccuracy in the body etch, please contact us at Enquiries@AlbaRailwayModels.co.uk
We apologise for this error and assure modellers this kit was produced with the best information available to us at the time of development.
