Hi

I wonder if anyone can please tell me if these are true Southern era coaches or if they are BR era southern coaches. No makers name under coaches. I bought them 10 years ago second hand.

These are Graham Farish coaches from the early/mid-1970s. The top and bottom ones are non-corridor 'composites' (marked as composites, but actually all the compartments are the same size!) while the middle one is a corridor brake third. Though not scale models of any particular type of coach the Farish non-corridor stock was loosely based on LMS Period II stock, while the corridor coaches were close to Maunsell 1929 Restriction 1 stock (hence the slightly taller corridor side windows), though the roof profile for both types is quite wrong and should be eliptical - Ultima Models did conversion packs to correct this.
