4mm Scale Carriages

4mm Scale Carriage Products

This list, Diagram Number order, has been collated to assist 4mm modellers with an interest in the LNWR or the LMS. D prefix refers to the LNWR Diagram number, W prefix refers to WCJS carriages, M prefix to Motor Fitted stock.
The information provided has been collated from manufacturers’ lists, catalogues and websites at the beginning of 2011 and from the collective memories of a number of Society members who have built 4mm models over the years. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the list, but if you are aware of any errors or omissions, please send an email to the Modelling Group .
Only diagram numbers are shown where a kit is in production or, if out of production, may be available S/H through eBay, specialist auction houses or “used” kit traders. The list is not exhaustive and doesn’t include some kits and products that have been out of production for some time and do not appear to be readily available through the usual second hand sources. In addition, we have been unable to find accurate details for some out of production ranges.
Kits include Red Rose etched components (sides/ends), Trevor Charlton etched zinc components (sides/end), Jidenco etched brass kits (Jidenco loco kits were available from Falcon Brass, but the LNWR vans, etc. are no longer listed as available), Modeller’s World etched kits, Bill Bedford etched sides/kits, Jackson Evans etched sides/ends. While this may seem rather a lot, many of the items that were supplied in these ranges are duplicated by kits that are still available.

These are the 4mm carriage kits known to us at the moment.
Note 247 Developments announced in September 2014 that they would no longer stock the range of carriage kits, sides and parts. However 247 has been sold to Brian Mosby - see their Website for more details.

51L/Wizard - coaches originally produced by Chowbent Castings, NPCC by PC Models. Etched sides, ends and underframes, cast bogies, aluminium or vac. formed plastic roofs.
Bill Bedford – etched sides/kits. Originally listed as “made to order” most have now been deleted from Bill Bedford's website list, with the exception of the Royal Train Diagrams. However, it is unclear if these have ever been available.
Blacksmith Models – originally available as Mallard Models. Etched sides, ends and underframes, cast bogies.
David Geen – coach kits originally produced as MicroRail, then by Alan Gibson. Etched ends, sides and underframes, vac. formed roof.

Modeller's World kits – etched brass and white metal, with machined timber clerestory roof. Occasionally available s/h.
Ratio kits – all plastic moulded.
Red Rose etched components (sides/ends). No longer available, these were etched from one side only and required windows to be cut-out. However many of these were comparatively unusual vehicles such as Post Offices, Parcel vans and so forth which were not (are still not) covered by any other range.
Stevenson Coaches – most kits in this range originally made & sold by Brian Badger. Etched sides, extruded aluminium or etched roofs, copper clad floor material, cast pewter ends (previously white metal), white metal bogies and fittings.
Trevor Charlton etched zinc components (sides/end). A wide selection of diagrams, these were etched from one side only, but the window apertures were pre-punched. Occasionally available S/H.
