R26B Coach & R27B Vista Dome Coach
These models had no resemblance to prototype Victorian Railways carriages, as the VR did not use vista dome cars and its modern blue and gold steel passenger carriages were smooth sided.

R27B Vista Dome Coach Victorian Railways. Roof in different shade of blue.
R27B Vista Dome Coach Victorian Railways.
passenger cars were used in the RAXD, R3XD and R3D sets in 1958 and 1959, as
well as being available separately.
The roof mouldings are sometimes a different shade of blue to the body and can also fade to a blue-grey colour. The body tends to fade to a blue/green colour. The vista dome seating is in the standard red/yellow/green colours used in the UK.
