The beginning of the 1960s saw a huge rise in motor traffic in the West Country. Many of the roads were simply not adequate to cope with summertime holiday traffic and therefore British Railways determined to try and grow business. The answer came in the Saturday car carrier service operation from Surbiton to Okehampton that was inaugurated in June 1960. It is believed that the coaches and GUVs carried destination boards covered in paper labels and we have replicated the two colour schemes that we know were used during its short life.

 

Quick and easy to use, this pack allows you to recreate your chosen titled train with the appropriate choice of coachboards, corridor tail boards and locomotive headboards. Printed to a high resolution on quality photographic card, the pack comes with full instructions.
