Darstaed British Railways (M) Maroon (ex LMS Period II) Coaches
Darstaed’s 35cm maroon ex LMS Period II running stock provides coaches to run with a wide variety of late crest BR mainline locomotives such as the Duchess, Britannia’s, 9Fs, Castles, Bulleid Spam Cans (for ‘Pines Express’), A3 and A4 Pacific locomotives together with Seven Mill B1, B17 and the ex LMS Class 2 Mickey Mouse. The BR maroon coaches capture the last years of steam locomotion prior to railway modernisation and the eventual takeover of diesel and electric traction. British Railways (M) ex LMS Period II mainline coaches are also a perfect mix for the ACE 9F Evening Star which ran as the ‘Pines Express’ in the early 1960s. In addition these coaches may be used with BR period Bassett-Lowke Class 20 diesels creating a modern late 1950s/60s setting.
A mix and match approach can be taken with these ex LMS Period II coaches with ACE’s 40cm mainline Mk1 liveried stock provides passenger train formations of varying lengths just as in real life railway practice. Each set comes with three coaches together with an additional full break coach.
