N Gauge Dean coaches

courtesy Reed Estabrook

The following coaches are of uncertain origin, but manage to represent early Dean bogie and 6-wheel stock rather nicely. The coaches are marked "Arnold Rapido" underneath, and so the underframes at least seem to be from that range. The bodies are similar to the old Grafar N gauge coaches, so we may be looking at the result of a rather clever conversion job.

If anyone can shed light on the parentage of these coaches, please let me know.

Two 6-wheelers. The lower one has a battery case leading to a red tail-light!
