I have decided to start to build some GWR coaches for my planned garden railway. I have about 10 year until my children grow up and I can take back over the part of the garden that is currently filled with a trampline and climbing frame and I have a plan for a lovely long S curve to sit and watch the trains go by. I figure this 10 year window gives me the time to build 10-20 coaches! I have spent time on GWR 7mm coach kits and non-passenger-carrying coaching stock ('brown vehicles') but have discovered that Just Like the Real Thing are no more, that Blacksmith Models seem to have disappeared and that Haywood Railway are not answering emails, I feel I may be a bit late to the party! I will be modelling mainline express trains from the 30's so wanted a mix of Toplights, Collets and a Dreadnaught or two in 57' and 70'. Keen to get any input into what kitmakers are still out there. I have come to terms with the fact that most suppliers seem to have limited online presence so keen to know what I may be missing.
