More GWR broad gauge malarkey, this time a pair of eight-wheeled coaches. As I type, I've photographed the parts, made a list of parts I need, and settled into a head-scratching mode as I ponder the first step. Oh my, what have I let myself in for! This is the body kit for a diagram E3 1st/2nd luggage composite. This will be the largest vehicle, being something close to 50ft long. The roof is clerestory, and for once the kit includes partitions. The kit originated from CPL, but is now sold by the Broad Gauge Society. An older and shorter model, this is also a 1st/2nd luggage compo of 42ft or so, diagram E6. Both vehicles I believe have a handbrake and guard accommodation in the central luggage compartment. The BGS underframe kit, of which I gave two to build. One, obviously, will require shortening. Thankfully, neither model will require widening! William Dean did not think bogies were worth the effort, so both these coaches will ride on a rigid eight-wheeled underframe - although, as you can probably tell, the kit provides for a form of radial truck system to cater for less-than-arrow-straight model railways. A selection of cast parts for lamps, underframe details and door vents, plus Slater's seat kits. Oh, what fun I shall have splicing together wide seats from these narrow ones! I have prepared a list of parts I need to get to make some shortfall, stuff like buffers, couplings and brake stands. The first step, I think, will be to cut out and clean up the sides and ends, form turnunders, and assemble things along the lines of the previous BG coach build: butt-soldering the main parts, with bracing struts across the top and bottom.
