Bachmann Bulleid SR Coaches 23/12/2020

Bachmann have just provided us with a view of the forthcoming OO SR Bulleid Coaches.


The models we see here are the first engineering samples but even still, we’re really blown away by them and we’re sure you will be too. These all-new Branchline models cover a number of different vehicle types and have been designed to portray them at each stage of their operating life.

Each model features a wealth of detail including separately fitted components such as roof vents, lamp irons, toilet filler & overflow pipework and the portrayal of a complete vacuum pipe-run between the sockets at each end of the vehicles. The bogies incorporate electrical pickups, brake details and footsteps as appropriate whilst authentic interiors are also included along with full underframe gear.

Era specific details incorporated into each vehicle type include:

  • Window Ventilators: original 10 inch vents or later 15 inch vents (plus the corresponding toilet window ventilators – original horizontal-opening vents or later vertical-opening)

  • Bodysides: As-built or with later reinforcing strips added

  • Braking System: Original single vacuum cylinder or twin cylinder system

  • Battery Boxes: Multiple positions and Bulleid or BR Mk1 type

  • Dynamo: Bulleid or BR Mk1 type

  • Footboards and bogie footsteps: Multiple lengths and positions

  • Guard’s Handrails: Two or One / Short or Long
