The Current Solution

s IC3000′ is the chair that First Great Western use in all their class 43 high speed trains which I have now have rough measurements and Gremmers own sketches, which I will use for my final model and CAD. The class 43 set also uses MK3 coaches which I have the brochure with dimensions and all features.

Chair Ergonomics

In addition to the standard fitment seats I have found ergonomically that seat backs are at an angle between 105° and 110° to the horizontal base, office chairs are usually 105°. Anything more than this causes problems to the user getting in and out of them, so I must work to this measurement.
