Set X Passenger Coaches
|First year published||1949|
|Number of cards||6|
|Size of cards||9 x 13 cm|
|Scale||1 : 200|
|Description||First isssued in 1949 at 1/8d, although it may have been published a year earlier at 1/6d.
Small leaflets enclosed with models during 1948, catalogue the model at 1/6d. As yet no example of a 1/6d edition has turned up, so this may be a catalogue error.
Re-printed in 1950/1951 with an emergency wrapper at 1/9d. The reason behind the appearance of the emergency wrapper is probably explained by the fact that the coach cards were available separately at 3½d for a set of twelve cards. This would have created an imbalance between stocks of cards and stocks of wrappers.
Re-printed in 1951/1952 with an illustrated wrapper at 1/9d.
The Passenger Coaches set contains:
One minor criticism of the set is that no Brake Ends were available, so authentic trains of coaches could not be assembled.
