Brand new item direct from our new Yorkshire model railway shop.
Product InfoMaunsell’s diagram 2652 third class dining saloons werebuilt in 1927 to provide an area for third class passengers to make use of thekitchen services provided in first class kitchen/dining coaches. The exteriorof the coaches utilised the ‘low-window’ Maunsell styling, with ventilatorsabove the windows and doors at each end which were gently recessed toaccommodate their grab handles within gauging limits.Inside, each coach could accommodate 64 diners and twotoilets were located at the end of the coach furthest away from thekitchen/dining first coach. Whereas a further 40 kitchen/dining firsts werebuilt to the same ‘low-window’ style from 1929 onwards, accompanying thirdclass dining was felt to be better served by the new ‘high-window’ open thirdsaloons and as a consequence, from 1930, the six third class restaurant diningsaloons were reclassified as open thirds.
