A recent purchase of a very suspect Maunsell Restaurant coach requires that I replace the chassis with something much better- the usual choice would be some form of 'bitsa' based on a Roxey or Branchlines chassis but only if I could obtain either item
Hornby Maunsell which offer superb running and kinetic close coupling as standard however is the Hornby chassis integral with the body, is it a sinecure to adapt this plastic paragon?
The Kirk kit is only one half of the team, there is a need for an open but if I am correct, were the Maunsell restaurant coaches rebuilt as autonomous buffet coaches? I recently watched a sequence of the ACE dropping off a Maunsell buffet at Seaton Junction. Any information would be most welcome.
