About GWR chocolate and cream autocoach   by Matti

Features include:

The ends of the coach are curved like on the real thing, this was achieved by using several hinges and wedge plates to reduce the amount of gaps. The doors have handrails and door handles which are highlighted in gold. The door handles are LEGO minifigure roller-skates with only the front exposed, this leaves a small edge which looks like a handle. Finally, the coach has lots of bogie and under frame detailing, this is mainly made up of a selection of bar pieces.

The coach is not powered unlike some other builders' designs and therefore needs a powered locomotive to pull/ push it. It is commonly paired up with my custom designed 56xx locomotive which I have also entered into your Brick train awards. It may not be a realistic consist, but it definitely looks good when going round layouts on my bedroom floor.
