 GWR liveried Inspection Saloon Driving Car

We recognise that it can often be a problem finding a suitable driving wagon to put behind the locomotive which is your pride and joy, without spoiling the authentic look of the train - particularly in 5" gauge where shorter rolling stock driving wagons make for an uncomfortable driving position!

So with this in mind we have introduced a product which will solve these problems - an Inspection Saloon based driving car.

Available in a choice of liveries with a manageble overall length of a little over 6'6" in 7 1/4" and 4'6" in 5" gauge, they sit on the same bogie type as our LMS ride-on coaches, and are "furnished" with our deep, profiled HD foam upholstered roofs, again as used on our ride on coaches.

These provide a comfy ride for both driver an even a light passenger (or two in 7 1/4" gauge version) and will look very smart behind any standard gauge loco, and will not look out of place in a longer train. These Inspection Saloons, having had long and varied use, have seen a number of liveries over the years, and thus will not look out place behind a multitude of locomotives, right up to more modern diesel locos.

Braking will be provided by use of our established caliper and disc brake system on one, or both, bogies.

NEW: Smaller, hand lever, braking unit now available

Please feel free to contact us for further information.
