We are currently working on laying out some coaches sides in 2mm scale as a commission. One of the vehicles involved in this is the D99 50' saloon (above). Would there be interest in this as a kit in 4mm scale we wonder? If there were that would give an underframe for the 50' semi-corridor coaches which were built in small numbers in 1910 for the Callander and Oban line. It is suspected that these would be more popular than their (slightly) numerically superior post-war variants which closely resemble the original 57' semi-corridor coach in the range (CC07). The earlier coaches would involve a wee bit more educated guesswork, drawings not having survived but nothing insurmountable it is felt. There were 3 types

  • D106 Composite,
  • D107 Brake Third and
  • D108 Brake Composite.

There is also an earlier version of the full brake with a fully panelled body and 8' wheelbase bogies (below) which uses a very similar underframe.

Caledonian Railway Coat of Arms

"Wha dare meddle wi' me" - a loose translation of the Scottish motto (nemo me impune lacessit, litterly meaning "no-one provokes me with impunity") which was appropriated along with the Scottish coat of arms (without any sanction from the Lord Lyon, King of Arms) by the Caledonian Railway Co.
