'Spooner' range.

These have been based on two old Boston Lodge drawings of 1875 and carry the 'family' look especially with the curved buffer beams and curved under floor cross members.

Kits include glass filled nylon wheels and axleboxes and stainless steel axles. (3 in 1 oil is recommended).

Festiniog & Blaenau carriages:

These three carriage designs have been developed from a drawing of the 3rd class carriage. There are few known photos to work from, but the 1st/2nd carriage was developed next.  After a lengthy discussions the Brake/3rd was developed from very feint photographic evidence of a different rear carriage. It appears to also have an offset roof mounted lamp in the brake compartment, possibly to avoid it being struck by the guard's head while winding down the brake handle?
