One of the ways any producer or retailer can tell whether they're getting it right is when customers keep coming back, so it's pleasing to announce that no sooner has the Line With No Name taken delivery of our latest pair of carriages than it has placed an order for a further three.

So the next models off the production line will be FR carriages 116 and 114 - the prototype '70's aluminium saloon and a 'Carnforth' buffet respectively - and also the WHHR's 'Gladstone Carriage'.

Not having any pictures of the prototypes myself, and not wishing to disrespect copyright, I haven't got any pictures of them to post, but if you're not immediately familiar with them you can get more information on them here, here and here.

Some portraits of the latest models produced at Boston Largs Works.

This is a pair of 4mm scale / OO9 Festiniog Railway 'Barn' carriages 107 & 123.

They have been scratchbuilt in styrene and have just been delivered to The Line With No Name.

The latest pair of carriages made at Boston Largs Works are now ready to be painted into FR two tone livery.

They are 4mm (009) models of 'Barn' carriages 107 and 123, which has recently been overhauled and converted from a 1st class observation carriage, running at the downhill end of FR trains, into a 3rd class carriage and turned so it can run as the first vehicle at the uphill end of trains where passengers can still enjoy the views from the windows in the former observation compartment.
