R27 Vista Dome Coach Tri-ang Railways

These were the first passenger cars made by Moldex and were used in the RAXC and R3XC sets, as well as being available separately in 1958 and 1959.

These carriages are sometimes found without numbers. It is not known if these were only used in sets, or if some separate models were also not numbered.

The blue plastic used seems to fade easily, as the models can be found in various shades of blue-green and blue-grey. The vista dome seating is in the standard red/yellow/green colours used in the UK.
