Etched Pixels / Ultima N Gauge Catalogue 2016 London South Western Railway

The LSWR operated services from Nine Elms and later London Waterloo South and Westwards serving Portsmouth, Southampton and Weymouth, before extending West from Salisbury into Devon, serving Exeter and Plymouth, becoming the main rival of the Great Western.

Our product range covers a variety of four and six wheel coaches, some bogie coaches and a few of the wagons of the LSWR.

LSWR Coaches

The kits have been designed to be easy to build. There is a minimum amount of soldering and glue can be used instead. To simplify construction the coaches fit Peco wagon chassis. To complete the kits you will need the listed wagon chassis, your choice of oil lamps or ventilators (round headed pins can also be used), paint and optionally decals.

Four Wheel Coaches

The four wheel coaches use 15ft chassis (not included) which needs adjusting for length. The body-shell is a single fold up box with an easy to curve etched roof and where appropriate separate droplights are provided to aid painting. The roofs are pre-marked for the fitting of root ventilators.
