The LMS built 2,050 of these large size cattle wagons between 1923 and 1926, replacing many of the short wheelbase small and medium size wagons which had come from the pre-grouping companies. The LMS had a huge cattle traffic varying from local trips to market, to block trains of imported Irish cattle which could need to move long distances from port to market. These longer wheelbase wagons permitted running at higher speeds, reducing journey times and the need to unload cattle for exercise and feeding en-route. The fleet would have been kept fully utilised and these wagons were still in use into the early 1960s. The transportation of cattle in the UK ceased in the mid seventies.


This kit contains all parts necessary to construct one of these vehicles, including wheels and brass bearings. The moulded parts are well produced making construction of the kit a pleasure to do. Full assembly instructions are included and will guide the modeller step by step.

Around 100 of the Vanwide design wagons were equiped with FAT suspension, roller bearings and air brakes, making them suitable for operation up to 60mph along with the new long type air braked vehicles. These short vans were often needed for traffic to and from older industrial installations and military sites, where track curvatures prevented the new, longer vans from entering.


This kit builds a model of one of these vans, possibly the last 'traditional' sized wagons in revenue service with British Rail. The kit is straightforward to build, the parts fitting together well. Separate suspension and axlebox units are supplied, making fitting and assembly of the chassis details very easy.

13,645 of these wagons were built. Features the unique LNER brake gear. Represents the batch of 409 built by Hurst Nelson in 1936. Examples lasted into the 1970s. These finely moulded plastic wagon kits come complete with pin point axle wheels and bearings.

Featuring a detailed rivetted body and distinctive high-level brake lever this kit represents a batch built in 1936. Following batches for the LNER and the early batches of the standard BR-built wagons retained many of these features, the raised brake levers being particularly noticable. Around 13,600 wagons were built to this pattern, serving alongside the later BR built examples with the frame-level Morton brake levers (kits PC77 & 78) well into the 1970s. The commonality between these kits for genarally similar wagons also allows for cross-kitting to create models of even more variations.

Designed and built for the specific purpose of hauling Cornish china clay these wagons had an end door to allow rapid discharge and brake gear arranged at the fixed end both sides. 500 were built in 1913, designated diagram O13, but when replacement became due in the early 1950s BR built more wagons to essentially the same design. While the GWR-built wagons were withdrawn in the 1950s the last of this design, modified with ridged tarpaulin covers and widely known as 'clay hoods' (kit available from Ratio), lasted until the 1980s.

10 ton Goods Van ‘Mink/Mink A’ V12, V14 and V16 Built between 1907 and 1927. Used for general goods traffic throughout the British railway system. In service until around 1960, later in departmental use. These finely moulded plastic wagon kits come complete with pin point axle wheels and bearings.

This wagon type was in use on the railways from introduction in 1907 until 1960, so with such a long timespan this will find a home on many model railways. The kit contains some very finely moulded parts, with plenty of sharp detail and relief, and by following the clear instructions modellers should find this a rewarding model to construct.
Everything is included except the couplings,paint and transfers. The parts are produced in a base grey colour, suitable for finishing in the GWR dark grey or later BR light grey goods wagon liveries.

These gunpowder vans were built between 1913 and 1926 to carry gunpowder and other explosives. Their design is a breakaway from the more traditional 'Iron Mink' type. Examples lasted until around 1960. Moulded in grey plastic, with brass bearings and metal wheels, this is another high quality wagon kit from Parkside Dundas. Parkside Dundas specialise in wagon kits of types not normally provided for by the ready-to-run manufacturers, so they fill in a very useful gap for many modellers. With clear instructions these kits are a pleasure to build. All the modeller needs to do is paint them and add transfers

During WW1 the GWR converted around 100 ventilated vans for use as emergency insulated meat vans, intending to convert them back to standard after the war. Following the war the import of bananas by refrigerated ships presented the railways with a need for a new type of temperature-controlable fruit van with heating to help ripen the bananas in cold weather. Having these surplus insulated box vans the GWR fitted steam heating and sliding ventilators to these vans to carry the bananas to market, often as a block train running as a fully fitted express goods.

Many stayed in service well into the 1950s, latterly running alongside the BR-design banana vans as produced by Ratio.
This kit, like all other OO kits from Parkside, are extremely well produced and include wheels and bearings. The body mouldings supplied are the same as Parksides GWR V12 ventilated van kit and alternative ends are supplied with the central sliding ventilator.

LNER 20 ton Toad E Goods Brake Van kit. Construction of these vehicles began in 1930, ending in 1936 after 901 had been completed. They were a development of the earlier Toad B brake van, which had wooden lookouts and end stanchions: on these new brake vans they were produced in steel. Running on mainly LNER/Eastern Region lines, they lasted well into the later BR period of the 1960s.
