Passenger Coaches

4 wheeled coaches.
The total rake consists of 3 coaches.
Coaches are made from Peco kits
American stlye Bogies coaches
The toal rake consists of two coaches at present, the second is still in the paint shop.
Both built from chivers kits
Bogie tram stlye coach.
There is only one of these in a rake.
I believe that this has been kit bashed from kits that made 4 wheeled coaches.

This is the start of my blog for my 0-16.5 layout.
As you can see from my other bloggs, I have another layout on the go in 4mm, and a 009 one, that I havent really run for over a year as I have been building Touchwood.
I will let you all see what the layout looks like with picture of its progress as I was building it.
The layout has been to two shows, SWING'10, and Tinkers Park Rail gala'10.
It has one more show booked for this year which is Worthing, and I have one booking for next year, but would be willing to take it to any show that I am invtied to.

Hope you enjoy finding out about the layout.
