Building LNER ‘Quad-Arts’
The LNER articulated ‘Quad-Art’ coaches stood out from the crowd – and the arrival of a new 3D printed resin kit from Isinglass Models was too tempting to resist. MIKE WILD knuckles down to build a four-coach set for ‘OO’ gauge with a handful of modifications along the way.

The finished ‘Quad-Art’ departs Topley Dale in the hands of one of the unreliable English Electric diesels.
