HO Scale Lightweight Coach

HO Scale Lightweight Coach


RF&P coachThese models have been improved from the original group that we manufactured all those years ago.

These improvements include:

  • All-new design with solid floors, solid sides and metal couplers!
  • Window blinds at random heights instead of all the same!
  • Incredible detail that is still miles ahead of the competition!

In addition, we’ve added new road names as well as new road numbers on schemes that have previously available.

The Super Continental Line Lightweight Coach is based on a CC&F design, and it is similar to cars used throughout North America. It is available with partial skirting or with fixed steps and two different styles of trucks, as appropriate.

Our HO Scale Model Features

    • Revised tooling for more rigid assembly
    • Accurate dimensions
    • Fully decorated and assembled with factory-installed grab irons
    • Full underbody with all air, steam and electrical lines
    • Window blinds at different heights for each car
    • Operating diaphragms with etched-metal end gates
    • Magnetic metal knuckle couplers at the correct height
    • Free-rolling trucks (41-BNO-11 or 41-N-11 as appropriate) with metal wheelsets
    • Full multi-colour interior detail
    • “Easy-Peasy” battery-operated interior lighting
    • 22” Minimum radius (18″ in a pinch…)
