Bachmann 34-460 Thompson 3rd Class Brake Corridor LNER Teak.
Shortly after the appointment of Edward Thompson as Chief Mechanical Engineer, the LNER implemented a post-war building program of over 4,000 coaches to replenish their outdated rolling stock. With suitable materials scarce to continue manufacturing Thompson’s predecessor, Nigel Greasley’s Teak coaches, Thompson designed a new series of all steel corridor coaches. These new designs were revised several times due to further material shortages and the coaches were finally built from 1947 to 1950 with steel bodies over teak frames. The bodies were then painted with a simulated Teak finish to help match that of the existing LNER coach stock.
These coaches feature refined tooling, giving an improved roof profile shape, a highly detailed authentic representation of wood grain effect, flush glazed windows, close coupling system, detailed ridge corridor gangway and separately attached roof vents, making them the perfect addition to your layout!
