This “OO” finescale kit-built First Class Kitchen Pullman Car “Ione” was built & painted by Brian Kirkby utilising a stripped down Hornby body with brass side overlays & whitemetal/brass bogies. The wheelsets are metal-tyred & free running. The re-glazed interior has partitions, seating & tables with table lamps. There is replacement/new underfloor & roof detailing, and a Bill Bedford specialist coupling (which can be easily unscrewed) at one end. Prototypically, this Pullman was built in 1928/1929 & introduced onto the GWR.
