Coach and non-passenger coaching stock kits

Apart fom those listed here, Mousa Models (Bill Bedford) may have some GWR made-to-order coaches to 3mm scale.

Much of the following draws on a 3mm Society list dated 2000, compiled by Richard Pope et al. Special thanks to Allen Doherty of Worsley Works for providing the list.

Some of these kits may no longer be available. It seems highly unlikely the Blacksmith range will become available again under that range's new owner.
