Product Description

Expected Delivery Q3 2024 (Subject to change at Manufacturer's Discretion).

Accurascale’s Mark 2c coaches build on the research from their Mark 2b coaches, with both variants surveyed together as Accurascale embarked on creating a wide reaching and flexible tooling suite for these missing links in the Mark 2 coach family. This was achieved using surveys of numerous surviving vehicles around the UK along with works drawings and even a partial 3D scan to ensure that the characteristic tumblehome and shape of the ends is as accurate as possible.

The survey extended to the interiors with particular attention being paid to differences of interior layout, seating styles and areas like the TSOT across the range.

A perfect complement to their Mark 2b range which is currently in production, Accurascale kick off the 2c range with 10 differently numbered coaches in the iconic BR Blue/Grey livery. The Mark 2c was quite varied, with Tourist Second Open (TSO), Corridor First (FK), Open First (FO), Brake Corridor First (BFK) and Brake Open Second (BSO) formats. In the 1980s four further types were introduced, SK and SO (declassified from first class), Corridor Composite (converted from FK for Scottish Region services) and a mini buffet with trolley space, known as TSO(T). All nine of these versions feature in Accurascale’s tooling suite.
