This is Hornby passenger carriage model R448 in its original box. It is a teak coloured 1st class sleeping railway car with yellow lettering produced by Hornby from 1978 until 1990. So, if you’ve got a OO gauge railway then this will fit perfectly, equally if your model village is 1:76 then this is the same scale so it could carry your villagers around their model village!
We have a wide range of Hornby OO gauge carriages for sale including some superb Hornby locomotives and tenders.
If you have a model train village you’re looking to expand then be sure to check out our Trains & Models section. We have a wide range of Hornby OO gauge carriages as well as some interesting OO gauge steam locomotives. For example, in this section on the Perfect Pieces website you will currently find a lovely Trix Trains A H Peppercorn LNER 525 engine & tender still in its original box!
We also currently have for a sale a CORGI Original Omnibus OM41404 AEC Regent double decker model bus. This is a 1:76 scale bus which is the same as the OO gauge so is perfect for OO gauge model railway villages.
This is an original OO gauge steam train in its original box. It is an LNER 525 Peppercorn 4-6-2 steam engine with an 8-wheeled tender. Both the locomotive and the tender are in a striking deep green colour. This model steam train has been tested and is in full working order and runs very well. It would be a perfect addition to any model enthusiast’s creation.
We have a wide range of OO gauge engines and carriages as well as OO gauge 1:76 model buses and trams – all perfect for your railway models!
On the Perfect Pieces website we have a large selection of diecast models and OO gauge trains and carriages for sale. Pieces range from Corgi limited edition model buses to fine Hornby and LIMA locomotives.
Trains and models are collected for all sorts of reasons but many people collect them to expand the model worlds they create. If you’ve never seen a model world then you’ll be amazed. The time, effort and detailing that goes into them can be superb. The National Railway Museum at York has a fine example stretching some distance through two galleries. This museum is certainly worth a trip even if you’re not an enthusiast. With free entry it really is fascinating and you can spend hours wandering around the full size locomotives, watching films and browsing the archives.
If you have created a model world built around trains, buses or anything else at all, then leave us a comment or email us a photograph which we can publish on the blog – we’d love to see your creations.

Here are some pictures from a model creator we’ve had sent in. It looks amazing with huge amounts of detail gone into both the scenery and track layout.
