3D Printed standard gauge Concertina Corridor Coaches

 

The GWR built  these large coaches, from 1906, to be suitable for more routes than the Dreadnaught coaches.  At 9ft wide it was found necessary to inset the doors. As there were doors to all compartments, this gave rise to the resemblance to the bellows of a concertina, a popular musical instrument at the time, hence the nickname.

Most  survived till  1950s and some were converted into departmental use..
