In 2010 we were approach by a client in Belfast to build a train for their Winter Express train. They required two low maintenance coaches which needed to run around tight corners on an indoor track. The high density polythene (HDPE) coloured board was chosen for the finish as it offered a robust finish which required little looking after. While quite an investment the board removes the need of any maintenance and will not suffer from being left out in all kinds of weather.

We are happy to quote to supply custom coaches which would be taylored to your requirements rather than an off the shelf make do product.
