Following a substantial delay, I have scanned in the Banbury Connections article from the January 2018 Railway Modeller. The article provides an overview of the model railway and delves into some of the factors which influenced the geographical extent of the Railway.
The inter-war years were a period of fierce rivalry between the Big Four railway companies, resulting in faster train services and increasing levels of passenger comfort. The London and North Eastern Railway Gresley carriages were no exception.
A recent ride on the Severn Valley railway allowed for a first-hand look at the generous seating and dining layout of a Gresley buffet car. While the Gresley's operating on Banbury Connections are in their prototypical BR Maroon livery for 1962, the Severn Valley Railway has opted to maintain the original teak finish on its carriages.
