Default OO Gauge Camping Coach

Interested in a OO gauge camping coach if someone has a surplus or a unused item.

Probably favour the Hornby R4604 but will consider others depending on condition and price.

Thanks

If you're not successful in your search, get onto Google & input Camping Coaches in the search box. I'm sure you'll find stacks of photos & maybe some drawings as well. The get hold of an old coach at a car boot sale or somewhere convenient to you, & make up your own! It's much more fun, & far more satisfying than just buying one!!

yes I looked into that beforehand and have seen that Fox do the 'camping coach' transfers, so maybe this is the way to go for a winter project when the attic is too cold. I'll go and search Fleabay for some cheap donor coaches.

thank you

I have an old Triang short type coach body spare. It is a bit warped in places and has no roof. Is too good to throw away. Has no wheels and a broken floor where the metal bogies once were.

Probably one of the Railroad LNER Gresley teaks would work well as the awful teak finish will be painted over anyway and they are certainly cheap. Add some metal wheels and a bit of buffer beam detail and it would look the part.
