|2863: LNER 61FT 6INCH CORRIDOR BRAKE COMPOSITE (D134/D175) 1930-1940|
This range of etched sides can be used with other parts from the MJT range to create a metal model of a Gresley teak bodied coach. Alternatively they can be used as the basis of a scratch built model or to adapt a suitable donor vehicle (see for example Model Rail February 2006 - Done in a Trice). The sides are 'multi layered' allowing detail such as beading to be represented accurately. Cast door ventilator hoods, etched hinges and handles are supplied with the sides. Vehicles can be made to complement other proprietary offerings so that authentic express formations can be modelled. The instructions give details of build dates, livery, numbering, etc. These vehicles were built between 1930 and 1940. The D134s feature turnbuckle trussing while most of the D175s feature angle iron trussing.

To make a complete coach the modeller should consider:
