Dreadnought stock (GWR)
The GWR had a loading gauge advantage over other companies, as the original infrastructure was designed for broad gauge dimensions. This bit of extra space allowed some very useful design freedom and the 1904 Dreadnought stock, with it's impressive 70 foot underframe, had a body width of 9 feet 6 inches when most other companies were limited to nine feet or less.
The illustration to the right shows Dreadnought stock, where the entrance doors to the end vestibules are inset to recess their grab & door handles. This pre-dated the compartment door arrangement used on the later Concertina stock.
As with the Bristolian diagrams, the couplings, steam & vacuum pipes, buffers, grab & door handles, jumper cables and corridor connections are available, but are listed separately for the benefit of scratchbuilders. Transfers and destination boards for other routes can also be ordered and accessories like passengers, partitions, luggage and overhead racks etc, can be found in the interiors section.
