The Oakeley Carriage - Open, a "private carriage" for the use of the Oakeley family. It seated 11 and a brakeman and it could be used in locomotive hauled passenger trains and for gravity workings. the model is very intricate, this is a small model and the detail is therefore very fine, the scroll work on the top of the carriage is made from ply and as such is delicate, extras are supplied in case of breakages, for the adventurous we suggest 1mm wire and a lot of patience is required to create the scroll work, wire not included. originally the carriage would have had buffers similar to the small round ones used on the bug boxes of the same time period, buffers are not supplied in this kit. wheels and axle boxes are supplied, originally the livery would have been most likely either green and cream similar to the bug boxes or a nice crimson with a black top. an enjoyable kit if somewhat delicate once complete.

Holycombe Yellow Truck. Its suggested that the Holycombe yellow carriage was originally built at dinorwic and like the yellow truck was used for dignitaries, however little is known about the conversion / construction, it would appear to have been built for incline use due to the sloped seats, but evidence of this is scarcest. The model is based on the known dimensions of the replica truck now at holycombe railway. The hand rails come with a bending guide to aid the builder. The kit come complete with wheels and axle boxes. The Model Town figure is not included.
