Vintage Set

Our oldest and most unique coaches and vans, many of which date back over 130 years to the 1880s.

The early days of railways saw many smaller companies building many small, non-standard coaches for passenger use. Coaches of this era produced a varied mix, but all adopted the same basic design developed from stagecoaches: a wooden body, bolted to a wooden or steel frame. With the development of the railways, many of these older coach designs became outdated and as speeds increased the four and six wheel coaches became incredebly uncomfortable.

 

Every vehicle in our vintage set has an interesting story to tell. Many survived in use as garden sheds or built into bungalows of the 1930s. Our vehicles date from between 1884 and 1929.
