Scored some well worn but mostly intact Hornby No.1 Pullman cars , these are a little longer and fancier than the Std Pullmans of the period , and cost 3 1/2 times as much!


I do not agree, but by Hornby collectors these Pullman cars are not considered fancy but ugly (according to the Hornby Companion series books). They were made between 1935 and 1941. They were not re-introduced after WWII; “it was felt that Britain had suffered enough without reviving this unsatisfactory monstrosity”. 

Of course you still need a Pullman Composite car like this:
