Since I built my micro-layout “Flagg Fluorspar” I’ve been on the lookout for kits for small items of rolling stock and locos. There are a fair number of these available at what I would call “pocket money prices” and whilst they all make quite respectable models, most of them will repay a little extra effort to add extra detail – besides, doing so makes your item unique. This is certainly the case with Houston Gate Locomotive Works’ latest offering, Coach J. Named for one of his customers who commissioned the design, this is a smart 4-wheel coach which is larger than the offerings in (say) the IP Engineering Ezee range. I don’t know what happened to Coach A to Coach H (there can’t be a Coach I because the Apple Corporation would get all upset).
