Talyllyn Railway guard's brake and luggage van Nº5MPM18 • by Meridian Models
Constructed by Brown, Marshall & Company in 1866, No. 5 is a combined guard’s brake and luggage van suited to all types of train. As originally built it had an open verandah on the brake compartment. Later modifications included the fitting of duckets (lookouts) and the filling in of the open-ended brake section. Also the removal of the sliding doors and ducket on the south facing non-platform side. The ducket on the platform side also formed the unique booking office window.
This kit will reproduce all versions of the van from 1866 to the 1950s, and with modifications by the builder of any version to date. Referral to the recommended publications is advised for further details.
