Pick and Mix

ParksideDundas VoR Coaches and Brake Van

On my workbench at the moment are four Parkside Dundas kits. Two are two compartment 4 wheel coaches (one as a brake), one is an open two compartment 4 wheel coach and the last is a 4 wheel guards van. The brake van is a Vale of Rheidol prototype and the others are freelance designs based on VoR / Glyn Valley Tramway style rolling stock.

My plan is to combine them to make a variety of two and three coach passenger trains.  I’m hoping these short trains will work well on my small layout.


  1. Hi Stephen,

    Firstly, your first layout has inspired me to build a small 009 layout for me to run the new Bachman Baldwin, and then for my little one to run a Bachman Skarloey.

    Are these the GVT inspired kit DM29 or are they freelance 4 wheel kit DM04a kits?

    Knowing me I will probably return with lots more questions.

    Cheers for now.
