Parkside Dundas O LNER Toad E 4 Wheel Goods Brake Van PS113
A finely detailed plastic model kit building a model of the LNERs early 'short' type brake vans with pressed steel lookout duckets. These were the LNER standard design of brake van until the introduction of the longer 4-wheel chassis vans with central cabin which became familiar as the British Railways standard.
These short vans are very useful for builders of small O gauge layouts and for local pick-up goods trains.
The LNER introduced this brake van design C1925, being a general update of the previous NER design 15-foot wheelbase goods brake van with robust pressed steel lookout duckets replacing the older designs' wood planking. The LNER allocated the telegraphic code "TOAD E" to the new 'group standard' design, although it was generally similar to the older 'TOAD B'. These vans lasted in service well into the 1960s and a few could be found 'out of use' around the BR network in 1980, though possibly being used as mess vans.
All Parkside kits are made to a high standard, making the kits straightforward to assemble and add extra detail to (a guard figure is available from Springside, while Slaters offer castings for the handbrake and stove) accompanied by detailed instructions with assembly diagrams. Wheels, buffers, 3-link couplings and transfers for early and late LNER and BR ownership are included.
Glue and paints are required to assemble and complete the model (not included)
