Offering for sale a brand new and boxed example of a Bachmann Branch-Line Model Railways BR MK1 SO Coach 2ND Open Chocolate/Cream Coach running number W3879, model reference number 39-054C.
The Standard Corridor type of railway carriage was one of the main mid-20th century designs. The coach was coded SK (previously TK) by the LNER / BR and CF by the LMS. The layout of the coach was a number of compartments, all of which were standard class (known as third class until 1956), linked by a side corridor.
The British Railways produced Mark 1 SK was the largest carriage design ever built in the United Kingdom. The original number series carried was 24000–26217. From 1983, those carriages in the 25xxx and 26xxx series were renumbered 18xxx and 19xxx. There were two types built, one for the Midland, Scottish and Eastern / North Eastern regions with six seats per compartment. While those built for the Southern and Western regions, due to the volume of passengers into London, had eight seats in each compartment.
