A very short GWR bogie coach

Postby Lysander » Mon Nov 12, 2018 9:28 pm

Yet another Triang Clerestory conversion, this time a low-roofed 38'6" Brake Third to [almost] Dia D15. The build, now well established, will be updated regularly. Hope you like it.

Unfortunately I have not been able to find a non-copyright photo of the real thing to post here.

Its looking excellent, but would 13Amp fuses be better?

Looks like it's coming on well, lucky find with the bogies.

So I toddled off to find my GWR carriages book to have a look, and typically of the 200 diagrams illustrated, it's not in there! :roll:

At last I have found the time to finish this build. The updated and completed blog is here:

All-in-all, a satisfying build. Not without its frustrations but one seen through to a useful completion. It just awaits its 4-wheel All Third partner now [in the paint-shops].

Lovely job, a nice, compact little coach.
