These were the first type of container flat wagons built by British Rail and formed into sets of wagons, each wagons being designed to carry 3 20-foot containers. As these formations of (usually) five wagons were intended to be fixed formations the outer wagons were fitted with side buffers and conventional couplings at one end only. The inner end of the wagons and both ends of the inner wagons had fixed bar couplings which were intended to be uncoupled only at repair depots.
The Freightliner flat models feature details such as linkage, pipe
work, close couplings, in-board disc-brake detail and sprung buffers.
For fixed rake operation the models feature fixed
bar couplings between wagons with standard tension lock couplings in NEM
pockets at the outer ends. The wagon deck is of die-cast metal
construction, giving weight and stability to the vehicle.
This model is finished as a tank in operation with Mineral Industries Limited.

EWS ex-Southern Railway 25-Ton Queen Mary Bogie Guards Brake Van EWS Maroon & Gold
The Southern Railway constructed a number of bogie brake vans to provide smooth riding vans for guards on express goods and parcels trains. Initial examples being rebuilt from redundant electric unit parcels cars these vans ride like a coach, in additon to having good weight and an efficient brake.
Brake vans were not normally needed on goods trains, however trains of especially dangerous goods including nuclear flask trains conveyed a brake van so the guards would not have to pass the hazardous cars in the event of a derailment. Many vans were also usefully employed as riding vans for train crews and shunters, coupled to class 08 shunting locomotives.
Era 8 1982-1994
A neat model of these modern 2-axle open wagon operated by ARC from their quarries for many years, usually deployed on lighter or short-term traffic flows where excavators were used to unload the wagons at a yard or siding close to the construction site. These wagons are very simple open boxes, but the strengthing ribs, end reinforcing are all accurately moulded.A useful addition to the range of modern wagons in OO.
This model is painted in a plain, unbranded black livery.
