This is a vintage discontinued/Phased out/OOP DAPOL model Railways Ltd. OO Scale Railroad UK’s GWR (Great Western Railway) brake coach rail car with car number 4579 that is brand new in box. The G.W.R. was formed as a railway company in 1835 and was the only company to survive the 1923 grouping, to become one of the big four. The King and Castle class locomotives were amongst the most famous G.W.R. steam designs. GWR still operates today and is headquartered in Paddington station, London. Major stations Bristol, Temple Meads, Cardiff General, London Paddington and Reading General.

 

The brake coach has a passenger compartment, a guard/brakeman compartment and a luggage compartment.

 

This brake coach is rare in that it was made by AIRFIX for dapol.


AIRFIX also made this same brake Coach for Palitoy (Mainline) company. Palitoy (Mainline) purchased AIRFIX in 1981 after their collapse and used their boxes for the sale of old AIRFIX stock and labels.

  • Note: “OO gauge or OO scale (also spelled 00 gauge and 00 scale) model railways are the most popular standard-gauge model railway tracks in the United Kingdom. This track gauge is one of several 4 mm-scale standards (4 mm to 1 foot or 1:76.2) used, but it is the only one to be served by the major manufacturers.”...wiki

  • Trivia: Dapol's name is a play on its founders David and Pauline Boyle's names.

  • Trivia: “In the United States, Lionel Corporation introduced a range of OO models in 1938. Soon other companies followed but it did not prove popular and remained on the market only until 1942. OO gauge was quickly eclipsed by HO scale. There is still a small following of American OO scale/gauge today.”...wiki

  • Trivia: “Great Western Railway (GWR) was a British railway company that linked London with the south-west and west of England and most of Wales. It was founded in 1833, received its enabling Act of Parliament in 1835 and ran its first trains in 1838. The GWR was the only company to keep its identity through the Railways Act 1921, which amalgamated it with the remaining independent railways within its territory, and it was finally merged at the end of 1947 when it was nationalized and became the Western Region of British Railways.

The GWR was called by some "God's Wonderful Railway" and by others the "Great Way Round" but it was famed as the "Holiday Line", taking many people to English Channel and Bristol Channel resorts in the West Country and the south-west of Wales such as Torquay, Dartmouth, Minehead and Tenby. The company's locomotives, many of which were built in the company's workshops at Swindon, were painted a Brunswick green colour while, for most of its existence, it used a two-tone "chocolate and cream" livery for its passenger coaches. Goods wagons were painted red but this was later changed to mid-grey.”...wiki
