HITTING THE MARK

Making the Bachmann Mark 1 even better.


For the next issue of Model Rail magazine (MR208), we're delving into the history of the iconic BR Mark 1 carriage. I'll also be looking at how to improve the Bachmann Mk1, while Chris Leigh has worked over the new Hornby Mk1. Additionally, Ben Ando has been chatting to Bachmann about how the impressive range of Mk1 models was created. Should be quite a feast for coaching stock fans...!

Big, medium and small - the Heljan 7mm scale BG towers over the Bachmann 'OO' and Farish 'N' models.

    What are you using for replacement gangways?
    Cheers

  2. Hi Lewis,
    I've fitted some laser-cut working gangways from York Modelmaking - a demo will feature in the article in MR208.
    All the best,
    George.
