3D Printed LYR Electric Stock
The Liverpool to Southport line was electrified in 1904, and new electric trains were introduced, proving to be very successful. Electrification was extended to Ormskirk, and most of the route still runs.

LYR electric baggage cars
Two electric baggage cars were built for the Southport to Liverpool line when it was electrified. Each could also accommodate workmen in a separate compartment.
Although built to the same specification D59, they were different in several obvious ways. The first(3028) had a low rounded roof and standard hinged doors, the second(3029) had a clerestory roof and sliding doors. Layout was slight different in each. A third one was supplied just after amalgamation of LYR and LNWR, to diagram D177, very similar to the others, but being steel sided and having an elliptical roof.
Requires chassis, bogies, wheels and finishing
