Antics Special Editions

Our own commissioned wagons

This volume is a companion to the author's previous book on wagons of the Forest of Dean. It takes a look at all of the known private owner wagon owners and operators based in Gloucestershire with almost 250 wagons being identified. It is illustrated with over 450 photographs, items of ephemera and maps, many of which are previously unpublished. Whilst the majority of the wagons belong to coal merchants there are also those for quarries, mills, a brewery and chemical works. As well as identifying the owners, the opportunity has been taken to give as much detail of their business as possible to give some idea as to how large the concern was and how long it was in operation. Thus, as well as being of interest to the private owner wagon enthusiast the volume also gives much industrial and social history for the county.

Antics' currently available and on-order specially commissioned model railway wagons in OO gauge. Wagons from the areas around our shops, principally Gloucestershire and the Stroud valleys, have been chosen. This allows a mix of colourful and decorative liveries to be presented, while many of the wagons would have been seen together en-route to and from collieries or destinations. The number produced of any one wagon is quite small, not exceeding 300 with some models only half.

We welcome suggestions for future models, ideally a photograph is required to allow the livery to be recreated.
