Bachmann have sent the NGS the first CAD drawings of the forthcoming Carflat, our next RTR model.

Carflats saw regular use from the mid 1950s; they are essentially coach chassis with the bodies removed – for both motoring holidays and to distribute new built cars for auto manufacturers.

The version we are doing represents one of a batch of around 50 built in the early 1960s on former BR Mk1 chassis, and largely associated with the famous Motorail brand launched exactly 50 years ago in 1966.

The CAD drawings shown are a “conglomerate” showing various details including vacuum and air brakes, buffing plates, Motorail branding plates and  BR1 bogies or B4 bogies.  Many of these details are model specific and will not be present on all types.
