7mm (Ogauge) Kit wagon, Picture illustrates a built example
Developed from a Midland Railway design, 950 of the vans were built between 1927 and 1931. After Nationalisation their use spread to other areas of BR, particularly ex LNER lines. By the 1950s they were commonly seen on local trip and branch line freights. In the 1960s some were transferred to the Civil Engineers fleet, where a few lasted into the 1990s. Withdrawal from ordinary traffic had taken place by the early 1970s. Transfers for early and late LMS periods and post 1948 BR.

A small fleet of these wagons were rebuilt from BR Tube wagons (PC55 above) in the middle 1960s to carry palletised beer barrels and kegs between breweries and distribution depots. Each wagon could carry 14 tons gross of palletised beer. The traffic declined in the 1970s but some of these vehicles lasted on as barrier wagons for hazardous loads.
BR 12 Ton Insulated Fish Van, OOgauge (4mm Kit)
This well known vehicle stemmed from the final LNER fish van design. BR built over 1,000 of them. At first they had oil axle boxes, but for long distance work many were given roller bearings. The blue spot identifying these gave them their nickname. After fish service many were converted to Parcels Vans (SPV) and lasted into the 1980s. Our kit allows both oil and roller bearing axlebox versions to be built.

The LNER introduced these plate wagons in 1940. The all welded body is of especial interest. During the war, the LMS built vehicles for its own use to this design. This wagon was a development of a 1937 prototype and itself became the basis of the BR standard wagon. Primarily used to carry steel plates, other conmmon loads were farm machinery, motor cars and large packing cases.

The double bolster is another deverlopment of the standard plate wagon. Typical loads were short steel sections, girders, reinforcing rods and pipes. In later days most of these wagons reverted to simple plate and trestle wagons. Chains are included in this kit for attaching to the bolsters.
OO gauge (4mm) Kit wagon
Around Peterborough, the Great Northern Railway served extensive brick works which supplied the London market. To give extra brake power to the heavy brick and coal trains from Peterborough, the GNR built in 1921, some 50 ton fully braked fitted wagons to carry bricks. A gross laden weight of over 60 tons would be a very effective brake. In 1930 the LNER built a further 25, it is this variation which is depicted in our kit.

800 of these wagons were built between 1949 and 1954, to an LMS design, to carry iron pipes chiefly from the giant works at Stanton and Stavely. They were vacuum fitted during the 1950s and our model repesents this variation. With the decline in pipe traffic in the 1970s these wagons were utilised for various other traffic and some were transferred to the Engineers fleet.
