Welsh Highland brake coaches are quite the fashion at the moment.
On the real railway Boston Lodge has been converting one of the original series of Winson-built saloons into a vehicle with a on-board toilet and storage for catering supplies.
It will re-enter service renumbered from 2041 to 2091, continuing a series which started with the original brake coach from the first set, 2090.
This has also undergone many modifications over 2 decades in service but our model remains in the condition it was first delivered to Dinas.
Ours too have also undergone a programme of improvements over the years, with the bogies being swapped from the plastic Nine Lines L&B wagon bogies we began with to my own fold-up brass and resin SAR diamond frame bogies, a pair of which have just been fitted to our 2090.
