These models replaced the R26 and R27 Tri-ang Railways models and were used in the R4D sets of 1962-67. Early R4D sets contained an R26 and an R27, but some 1964 sets contained two R26 coaches and the 1965 67 R4D sets contained three R26 coaches. Both R26 and R27 models were available separately during the period from 1962 to 1967.

Some rare models can be found with grey roofs.  The vista dome seating is in the standard red/yellow/green colours on early models, but later models had plain red seating.
