Dapol - N Maunsell Coach BR Brake Composite 6574

Richard Maunsell (1868-1944) spent his working life in railways, First as Chief Mechanical Engineer of The South Eastern and Chatham Railway
and then on its merger in 1923 as the Chief Mechanical Engineer of the new Southern Railway. By 1926, Maunsell had finalised his plans for a
new design of Southern coach, implementing many standard features such as buckeye couplers, standard positioning for most mechanical
and braking devices, Pullman type gangways and retractable buffers that would suit the newly formed company and its lines. Even with this new
degree of standardisation implemented by Maunsell, four distinct body plans were developed over the following 10 years to meet the diverse type
of track and to fall within the financial constraints being faced by the business at the time. These coaches, however, were very successful and a few
survive on heritage railways today.
