An evocative picture that really does capture the essence of Southern railway branch traffic. I think I saw a similar vehicle in one of my S and D books, and I really like them, are there any manufacturers still producing this type of driving coach?
Kernow model centre are in the process of producing in 00 ex LSWER / SR pull push sets 363, 373/4 known as gate stock see here http://www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com/pg/117/LSWR_Gate_Stock
Then the question arises should you scrap the old kit built stock when good RTR arrives? I have yet to put my two Hornby Black Motors alongside the old kit built (Bec?) equivalent but it is clear it is no contest. The Hornby M7s are also gorgeous but I do not own a kit built M7 to compare. I think I will overcome the nostalgia and free up the space! Anyone want a Bec 700?
