    J M Design overlays for Dapol coaches

    I am trying to establish if there is sufficient interest to add further coach sides to the Buffet & Corridor Second released last year.

    The illustrations are in green because I was too lazy to draw them in black & tan

    Originally built 1953 classified as 3rds built to run as railcar trailers 1356-1371 were the first of CIEs family of 64 seat standard open coaches.

    These coaches were also very close in outline to 1497-1503 some of the last traditional coaches built at Inchacore in the early 1960s.

    Originally classified as 3rds and introduced in 1953 some of these coaches were converted to driving trailers for use with the AEC railcars on the Westland Row-Galway & Westport "Cu na Mara" express service.

    One of these coaches was later fitted with storage heaters for use on the Ballina Branch

    These coaches seem to have originally been introduced with guards look outs, some of which were later plated over, separate frets would be required for coaches with or without lookouts.

    This fret will be a tad more expensive than the ordinary coaches and a bit more involved to build as the van doors will have be engraved on a separate section of the fret to the sides.

    I am looking at expressions of interest for a minimum run of 6 of any one type.

    I would most definitely be interested in both the SO and BGSV. What is the likely price, please?
    Many thanks.

    The overlays are etched brass and designed to fit the Dapol Stanier 60' side corridor coaches more details are on the JM Design Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/jmdesignmodelrailways

    Kieran did a thread on his Workbench on building a rake of "Bredins" with these sides http://irishrailwaymodeller.com/show...rojects/page64.

    If there is sufficient interest I will look at doing a set of etched parts to complete a scale length model of these coaches on a similar principal to the tin van kits. A common underframe and ends fret could be shared between several types of coach, with separate roof fret or moulding

    SSM or Comet may be able to supply suitable castings which would reduce tooling costs and speed up introduction.

    The overlays are $32Nz+$10 postage approx ₤16 postage + $5
