From 1905 when he was appointed Carriage & Wagon Superintendent of the GNR until the formation of the LNER in 1923, the majority of Gresley’s distinctive carriages were built on 57′ underframes rather than the later post-Grouping 60′ standard. (The body length is usually quoted as 58’6″ due to the bow ends.) ECJS vehicles built at York were fitted with a different design (our NERC001).
The pack contains floor pan, solebars and headstocks only. Other parts to complete are available from Wizard Models and other suppliers.
