Ex-GNR D 122 and D 164B carriages question

Post by Atso » Wed May 29, 2019 7:09 pm

Hello all,

A quick question if I may to help with my attempt to model the 5pm King's Cross to Peterborough service. Would I be right in thinking that the D 122 and D164B carriages would share a common external arrangement with the more common D 121 and D 164A carriages (other than the differences in width)?

Many thanks
Steve

The D121 and 164A have three First class compartments @ 7ft 2in each.

The D122 and 164B have only two Firsts.

The D122 had 4-a-side seating in first class, the D121 3-a-side.

The external arrangements are therefore slightly different, including the panels above the waist.

Thank you John. I think it'll be best to obtain the relevant set of Isinglass drawings rather than trying to work them out using the Campling book then.

Hi Steve,

Yes, I think you are right. John Edgson did drawings for the variations. I will look for photos as well, sometimes things were not quite as the GAs showed.

The differences would be apparent in 2mm scale.
