    Has any manufacturer ever made an OO gauge, mark 1 buffet (or restaurant) car in InterCity (Executive or swallow) livery?

    The one linked by eastdyke is a Replica Railways model and is quite old now hence the chunky tension lock couplings (and plastic wheels maybe?)
    Still a good model though.
    Bachmann have produced one too...

    Not got time myself but there may be some on eBay?

    Not sure about that.
    This is the Replica model (circa 1986), which I believe to have been a re-use of the earlier Mainline tooling:

    I have a Hornby example, it has metal wheels although as it came to me secondhand they could have been fitted by a previous owner. The Hornby model was in their catalogues for 2001/2/3.

    I think I might still have a Replica mk1 buffet in blue and grey kicking around somewhere. I put metal wheeled Lima bogies on it (with spacers to make it run at the right height).
    It’s a nicely detailed model considering how old it is.
