These inspection saloons provide a comfy ride for both driver and even a light passenger (or two in 7 1/4" gauge version) . It 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.
The braking upgrade, if purchased in it's entirety, provides for interlinked manual and vacuum operated braking. The neat central unit sits quite easily within both the 5" and 7 1/4" gauge bodies, and accommodates a central pivot with arms which connect to both manual and vacuum inputs, using a sliding link so each can be operated independently.
We have now also removed the need for the large outside manual brake lever, by replacing it with a neat hand lever on a "flying" cable which can easily be stowed beneath the seat when not needed.
Please feel free to contact us for further information.
