Magnificent coaches derPeter, they look superb! Did you make these or are they a kit ? The early teak CIWL coaches are some of the best looking rolling stock of any period and make my blue J&M CIWL coaches look plain by comparison.

Wonderful! They look very very very good!
Could you say something about the corridor connections, which look very good too.

Do you have a matching locomotive?

Regards
Fred
