R26 Coach – Tri-ang Railways
R27 Vista Dome Coach – Tri-ang Railways
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.
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.
