These coaches are a set of three sit-astride coaches built new for the railway by B. Lomas in 1999. They served the railway on their own for our first three years, before two-train operation dictated the building of more carriages. Originally 6 were built, but 3 (nos. 4-6) were moved elsewhere in early 2001.
These coaches are our Heritage vehicles they where the frist to be bulit and are 12 years old!
These get a lot of use each vehicle is nine feet long, and can seat about 7 adults or 12 children, and are numbered 1 to 3. These have been modified with suspension to improve ride quality.
The latest addition to our fleet are the covered "Pullman" coaches built in 2010 to a similar design to our original covered they where heavily used over the christmas season and where proven very popular with passengers.

Constructed in late 2007 to complement Jack and Goliath, this pair of coaches are both 8 feet long, and were built with suspension from new. Put into service at the start of the Christmas break without any formal testing, they're high riding quality have mean that they are considered successful and will see significant use with Jack and other smaller engines, or simply when needed or desired. Another set has been built and have DMR logo's on the side.
There are currently three small wagons kept at the DMR; a freelance tanker wagon and two slate trucks based on those which ran at the Dinorwic quarries in North Wales. Pictures below illustrate these vehicles.
The two slate trucks are currently used for storage in our train depot, the tank truck is at the back of depot out of use.
