We are now able to offer the Accucraft Mk 1 coaches. Built in two distinct batches, the early vehicles (1951–60) and the ‘Commonwealth’ stock (named from the type of bogie used) from 1961 onwards. Built of steel, the coaches were produced in a multitude of different formats and gradually replaced pre-nationalisation coaches across all the regions. The original bogies were a double bolster type, which like the carriages mounted upon them, were designated ‘BR Mark 1’ (BR1 for short). These gave an unsatisfactory ride and a new cast-steel design was introduced from 1958 (often referred to as the Commonwealth type).

After many years of front line service, the British Railways fleet was superseded by the Mk2 and Mk3 coaches and steadily withdrawn from service. This was, however, far from the end of the story and hundreds were purchased by preserved railways and main line tour operators who still rely on them to provide passenger accommodation today.

The models feature flushglaze windows, sprung brass buffers, knuckle couplings throughout with single chain link coupling one end of the BSK's, metal bogies with insulated steel wheels & axles running on roller bearings and flexible rubber corridor connectors. Full interior compartment detailing.
