4mm RTR coaches and non-passenger-carrying coaching stock ('brown vehicles')

This list shows most GWR-design 4mm ready-to-run coaches and non-passenger-carrying coaching stock (NPCCS) produced since the 1970s, and indicates current and previous manufacturers, although this has been simplified.

Discontinued models are often available secondhand, and can be purchased at shows or by mail-order from dealers.
