I believe they are an attempt at a Caledonian coach. Hornby used the tooling for the coaches that came with the last single wheeler set.

They were first produced by Triang as Caledonian coaches. The body sides are quite good but the ends, underframes and bogies are pure BR Mk1. Hornby re-released them recently in two guises : Caledonian and LMS. Both had really well applied liveries and were part of boxed sets [Caledonian and Last Single Wheeler]. If you want more, and want them to match, your best bet is eBay - look for Triang coaches. They could be improved, I suppose, but they have no interior fittings and the roof is fitted to the floor by two bolts - visibly - I seem to remember.

The Triang editions were also released in an ersatz GWR livery.

I had some SR green ones some years ago, swapped them for the newer and almost as bad 1980's SR green coaches.
