Railton Cars
Invicta cars ceased production around 1935 and Noel Macklin started up Railton from the Chobham works, named Reid Anthony Railton designer of a World Speed Record car. The first product was the 'Railton-Terraplane' using a Hudson Terraplane chassis with its 4010cc Hudson Straight-8 engine, and production started in 1933 just as Invicta was winding down and had already moved from Chobham. In 1935, after the Hudson Terraplane had ceased production, Railtons used the Hudson Eight chassis with its 4168cc engine. Macklin thought he had found a formula to produce the quiet powerful car that he had set out to make as the Invicta, but now he could do so at an affordable price. In 1937 Railton included a car based on a Hudson 2723cc 6-cylinder engine. HUdson bought Railton off Macklin in 1939 when he decided to go into powerboats, but the operation did not survive the war years. George Brough took a similar recipe to produce the Brough Superior car from 1935-39 also based on Hudson components.
