Silver Jubilee Kitchen Car

Post by Cutter » Thu Aug 22, 2019 2:01 pm

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if the kitchen car in the Silver Jubilee restaurant triplet had opaque glass in the windows on the corridor side or clear?

I have been poring over books and photos trying to figure this out, and have found models glazed both ways. The carriage had opaque window glass on the kitchen side, but appears to have had clear glass in the doors.

Many thanks!

The rest of the set build are earlier in the thread, read from about page 6.

I trust this might help.

Perfect, thank you. Clear photographic proof!

I am working on the Recreation21 3D prints in N scale.

And the door clearly has opaque glass also.
