A blue-with-silver stripes 00-gauge Coronation Scot First-class corridor coach, number 1070, made by Hornby (model R.422), probably in the 1980s.

The coach is blue with a pale grey ribbed roof, with white paintwork detail, and silver stripes and silver inner windowframe detail, and a "1" painted on the two end side-doors. It has a corridor running along one side, and has a partial white strip below the roofline "THE CORONATION SCOT" in block capitals.

Wheels are black plastic with white-painted "Coronation Scot" rims. The coach crest is two-colour (yellow centre, silver rim detail, later versions added red), and the interior details and corridor wall are white plastic rather than the brown used on later versions.
