Southern Railway - Horsebox

This model started life as a Lima Horsebox and was taken apart to allow for the removal of most of the roof vents, making it more realistic in appearance. The body has been repainted (roof in white, sides in Maunsell Olive Green and the ends in black), with matt varnish being applied after new lettering and numbers. The number on the grooms’ door is believed to be accurate, but the position of the ‘Southern Railway’ is an ‘educated guess’, as no close up photographs could be found to offer guidance! The chassis has been re-wheeled with new Hornby disc wheels, the couplings have been changed to modern narrow Hornby/Bachmann type and a vacuum pipe added to each end.

Horseboxes were usually attached to passenger trains, but were also known to run in ‘special trains’ to race meetings, such as Newmarket, etc.
