Hi All.   With so much on my plate at the moment, I have been inspired into thinking about an old favourite.I am looking for a possible OO scale coach for conversion , if possible ? I would like a Bogie B Passenger Brakevan ,
 at least if I don’t make an ash of it? It will have bogies. But with my eBay experiences behind me? I don’t want to go down that again. But I don’t know what type of carriage to start with. Where? Model railway shows, or swap meets.
Best wishes.  Kevin

The Bogie B is constructed more like a van than a coach, so about all you could use from a coach is the underframe and maybe the roof.

Hornby do (or did) one RTR and Ratio do a kit in 00.

Before Farish brought one out in N gauge I did a cut 'n shut on 2 CCTs which looked close enough.

Hi Mike. Thank you for your reply. I have actually started on a Ratio kit. But, one set of double doors is back to front.Hornby adapted? a Bogie B to run in the Funeral Train. But I am not that fussy. But you have given me something to think about. Best wishes.   Kevin

Hornby's earlier offering, as used in the funeral train, was a GLV (Gangwayed Luggage Van), which had through corridor connections and no guard's compartment, so quite a different vehicle. For all its age (the moulding dates from around 1957, or thereabouts), it's not a bad representation, but really isn't an accurate model, being part-way between two different lengths of GLVs.

The newer Bogie B from Hornby is essentially the same vehicle type as the Ratio kit, but you don't have the fun of building and finishing it. The Ratio kit is over-complicated, in my opinion, but can make up into a fine, detailed vehicle, and you can finish it to suit your own requirements. For all the included details in the kit, the one thing missing is the grilles that go behind the windows. I used Blacksmith Models etches when I built mine years ago, but I believe Roxey Mouldings offer similar etches too.

Hi Jeff.   Thank you. I agree the ratio kit with its wafer thin etches is too fiddly. Let alone building the self assembly bogies.On the Hornby funeral train comment, I had never seen one, I was going by hearsay. Best wishes. Kevin
