A set of Great Western Railway Loco Coal wagons using the Peco 9ft wheelbase chassis
to complement the GWR Coaling Stage. These 3 different types of wagon reflect the
different construction methods employed by the GWR over time.
Introduced in the 1880s, these were the original loco coal wagons, as seen by their
all wooden construction, based on a standard four plank wagon with a wider plank
added to the top. They were replaced within 30 years or so by the more modern all
steel designs and moved into general goods traffic (with sheet rail or coke rails).
The final design of 9ft wheelbase loco coal wagon, this was an all steel wagon with
Morton lever brake. The main spotting feature is the use of right angle corners.
Virtually identical to the diagram N30 wagons, the main difference with this earlier
design was the use of rounded corners and DC III brake.
These kits are made from 0.75mm plastic with details like planks laser etched. There
are also etching lines as a guide for where to add plastic strip to represent strapping
and framing. Full body side transfers from Robbie Burns are included.
Please note that the required Peco chassis needs to be purchased separately.
