Graham Farish N 377-505 3 Plank Wagon BR Bauxite (Early)

These low-sided 3 plank wagons were used for a variety of 'solid' loads like crated machinery and road vehicles which could be roped or chained down to secure them to the wagon.
Usually these wagons were not supposed to be loaded with containers as they lacked the tie-down rigs fitted to container flats, but containers were sometimes loaded and lashed securley to the buffer bodies.

6 wheel milk tanker model finished in United Dairies livery.
Milk tankers were developed to allow the safe, efficient and fast transportation of milk from the country into towns and cities.  They first came into service in the early 1930's and went through various design improvements and modifications until the 6 wheel milk tanker was developed which remained in service until the early 1980's, when their use was eclipsed by the use of road transport. Between 1932 and 1948 over 600 were built and several survive into preservation

A superb new model of the 20-ton open mineral wagon from Dapol. The highly detailed body features side and end doors complete with many neatly moulded rivets. All lettering is clearly printed, with even the small lettering clearly legible.

A combination of two large coal factor companies under the initials of the owners PJ & JP operated in the South Wales area during the 1930's. The company was one of the largest coal dealers in that coal field and took advantage of the lower rates offered by the GWR for the use of these large capacity 20-ton wagons. These were far more modern and robust than the wooden 7-plank opens, conveyed loads in shorter trains with fewer axles and ran on oil axleboxes, all combining to require less locomotive power per ton to move than when older small capacity grease lubricated wagons were used.

United Dairies 4 wheel bulk milk tank wagon.
The construction of country dairy plants allowed milk to be forwarded to city depots in bulk instead of in small individual churns. These milk tank wagons were built using the base design of the oil tank wagons then in use, though intended to run in faster stopping passenger and parcels trains. The 4 wheel chassis proved unsuited to this and a 6-wheeled design became standard for milk tank wagons.
This model recreates one of the early wagons, some of which could be used on shorter distance deliveries where speeds was less important.

Nicely details model of a cylindrical oil tank wagon in the plain black livery chosen by many heavy-oil suppliers and consumers, with the owners name spelt out along the length of the barrel.

Based at Kilnhurst near Swinton, South Yorkshire, this company produced tar, mainly from the residue left over in gas and coke works. It would have been a messy business! They had a small fleet of tank wagons, including this example No. 597, one of 5 built by Charles Roberts in 1940 and registered by the LMS. Carrying the name in full in chrome yellow on the black tank side, we are sure that these wagons did not stay in this condition for long! As usual, the free running characteristics and fine printing of the livery come as standard on this model.

A detailed model of a wagon built by the Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company for The Economic Coal Company of Kidderminster.
Although not a widely known coal company The Economic Coal Company were a firm of coal factors in  Kidderminster bought wagons from the Gloucester RC&W co. in 1910 and continued to trade until the company was wound up in 1966.

Coal Factors were companies who purchased coal on contract from collieries, usually undertaking to take an agreed regular tonnage per month and then sold the coal on to local merchants in wagon-loads. This allowed local merchants to offer a range of coals, including types of coal not readily available from local collieries and obtain single loads quickly when they wanted them. Coal factors' wagons often travelled widely to bring in a range of types of coal, The Economic Coal Company wagons might well have made regular journeys to the Forest of Dean, South Wales and Bristol/North Somerset coalfields and might even have been sent beyond the Midlands and Black Country to collect coal from the north of England. The fitting of a small bracket to allow a destination label to be attached after the lettering 'Empty to' suggests the company bought coal from a number of collieries rather than one regular source.

This wagon is supplied with a removable coal load.
