Bachmann 38-677 00 Gauge GWR Old Oak Common Shunters Truck

A highly detailed model of the small GWR shunters trucks used to provide a place for the shunter to ride safely around goods yards, coupled to the shunting engine. The box and flat floor of the wagon provided storage space for tools and spares, including shunters poles, brake sticks, train tail lamps and spare couplings.

The Bachmann model has been designed to recreate several different designs of shunters trucks as the differences were mainly in detail design. Three versions have been displayed in Bachmanns' display cases covering designs with round turned type handrail knobs, straight angle-iron grab iron brackets and inward-angled angle-iron brackets.

This wagon is painted in the GWR goods grey livery lettered for use at Old Oak Common, which was the major locomotive and passenger coaching stock depot for London. Shunters trucks were used around the coach yards to assemble trains ready for hauling into Paddington station.

Model of a 5 plank end door china clay wagon in GWR grey livery. These wagons were used to convey china clay from the clay dries at the quarries to the UK potteries, paper plants and ports for export. When loaded the wagons were covered by a tarpaulin to prevent contamination of the load.
Cornwall was the main source for china clay so the GWR owned a fleet of these wagons, with more being built by British Railways after nationalisation, these later wagons remaining in service until the early 1980s.
