British Railways Kits

BR 1950s era Wagons from Peco, Slaters and Parkside
A highly detailed plastic model kit of the BR design shock absorbing open wagon.
Sock absorbing wagons were introduced in the 1930s to provide extra shock protection during shunting for more fragile goods. Springs were mounted alongside the solebars and a slightly shorter body was fitted, secured to allow longitudinal movement attached to and controlled by the springs, instead of the body being rigidly fixed to the underframe. Typical loads for shock opens would include bricks and earthenware products like sewer pipes.
Supplied with metal wheels, 3 link couplings and sprung buffers

A well designed kit to construct a model of the BR engineers standard Grampus general materials carrier wagon.
Over 4,000 Grampus wagons were built from 1951 to 1959, based on the last GWR drop-side ballast wagon design with the addition of removable end panels, allowing extra-long loads like signal posts to be carried. The wagons have proven so useful that many could be found in use in 2000, and in addition to wagons used on heritage railways we would not be at all surprised to find some still hiding out in Network Rail engineers yards!
Etched region allocation plates are included, along with transfers for early BR and TOPS era lettering.
Supplied with metal wheels and 3 link couplings.

Developed from the GWR 20-ton open wagon the BR 21-ton version was intended to be the standard coal wagon. The wagons never proved quite so popular with the domestic trade customers as the smaller 16-ton version and later hoppers too over many bulk coal flows. The 21-tonner remains a distinctive wagon of the early BR era, something different to the ubiquitous 16-ton minerals.
Parkside have a well deserved reputation for making excellent kits, producing an accurate model which remains easy to assemble well with only basic tools required.
Supplied with metal wheels and 3 link couplings.
