Cardiff became the official capital of Wales in 1955 and this train was named in recognition of this in 1956 by Western Region of British Railways. This pack allows you to model the train that ran with chocolate and cream Mark 1 stock between Paddington and Cardiff. The black and red headboards were used when the title was first introduced in 1956 and these were joined by the white one later in the year. The ornate cast board with shields was introduced in the autumn of 1959 but was rarely carried.
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.
Pack size: A5
