Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
It’s not immediately apparent that these started out as basically the same carriage.
The buffet car in the foreground would have looked the same before it was cut down the the FR with the intention of through running.
It’s remarkable what difference the extra few inches in height make, but I think the biggest visual differentiator is the bars over the opening windows which alter its appearance.
Also, you can’t help being struck by how austere (and economical) these carriages look compared to the high water mark of the FR ‘bowsiders’ a few years before.
