If you like building rolling stock and prefer to build your own Ride-on Coach and save money, then look no further.
These coach kits builds into a high quality, sturdy, steel bodied, model, using CNC machined parts, laser cut steel work and with the attention to detail which 17D Miniatures apply to all their products.
The complete kits can be purchased as one item - prices shown at right - which provides a saving of around 15% over buying the individual parts separately. Although if you would prefer to spread the cost then you can buy all the parts as and when needed through our webshop too.
These Ride-on Coaches provide a comfy ride for two adults (5" version) and three to four adults (7 1/4" gauge version). They will look very smart behind any standard gauge loco, and the low cost of the kit versions brings a rake of coaches within the budget of many.
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.
