The GWR were early innovators with iron and steel for wagon construction, building large numbers of robust and long-lived iron and steel bodied wagons. The locomotive coal fleet was filled with iron bodied open wagons in a range of capacities, the 10ton versions being seen regularly at small branch terminus locomotive sheds.
This plastic model kit was produced by Cooper Craft, this range of kits has been taken into the Slater's range and are now supplied complete with wheels, bearings and sprung buffers.

Slaters 7015 GWR Rebuilt 3 plank open merchandise wagon

This plastic model kit was produced by Cooper Craft, this range of kits has been taken into the Slater's range and are now supplied with wheels, bearings and turned steel buffers.

This kit builds a model of one of the GWRs 3 plank open wagon rebuilds.

Rebuilding was a rapid and cost effective route to the upgrading of older wagons built in the late 1880s and 1890s with iron underframes after the original bodies were becoming too damaged to be simply repaired. New style bodies were built onto the still-servicable underframes extending their working lives into the 1930s at a minimum cost.

Horsebox vans were a common sight on Britains' railways until the 1960s. This model kit is the GWR design dating from the 1920s, with a grooms' compartment, large side doors to allow horses to be loaded and unloaded easily and a stowage compartment for fodder. Equipped with passenger type suspension, vacuum brakes and often steam heating these horseboxes would be conveyed by passenger trains on many branchlines and by secondary trains on the mainline. Long trains of horseboxes were also seen sometimes, especially when a major race meet or polo tournament was imminent!
300 of these vehicles were built in the 1920s, lasting into the 1950s and 60s. Transfers for GWR and BR.
Supplied with metal wheels and 3 link couplings.

Detailed plastic model kit building a model of the GWR plywood sided ventilated box vans of diagram V36 or V37.
Plywood was used as an alternative to planks for ventilated box vans from the late 1930s. This GWR design dates from 1944 and can be built as diagram V36 with vacuum brakes or diagram V37 with hand brake only. The last GWR orders of these vans were completed after nationalisation as BR diagrams 1/203 (fitted) and 1/205 (unfitted). Many of the GWR V37 and BR 1/205 vans were retro-fitted with vacuum brakes during the 1950s and the last of these vans were withdrawn in the 1970s. Transfers supplied for GWR and BR liveries.
Supplied with metal wheels and 3 link couplings.

Plastic kit to build a detailed model of the GWR 16-ton goods brake van.
The Peco kits feature a simple compensation system for reliable running. Couplings, sprung buffers, metal wheels and wire for handrails are all included.
These vans date from the late 1890 and 1900s and are shorter than the later standard 20 ton vans which appeared during the Churchward era. These lighter goods brake vans were rapidly displaced from mainline duties but many were still in service on branchlines well into the nationalisation period.
