Produced initially as part of the Lionheart Trains range this is a detailed model of the British Railways standard diagram 1/108 welded body 16-ton steel mineral wagon. The tooling can be arranged to produce original body wagons with top flap doors and the later rebodied wagons with solid top rail.
Wagon B582100 is modelled with its original body and top flap doors but now carrying the 1970s TOPS computer wagon description code MCV or MXV appear in place of the MINFIT code applied previously. Vacuum braked wagons were retained in service through the late 1970s as unfitted wagons were withdrawn. Many of these wagons had been rebodied by the mid-1970s to extend their service lives, but a few repaired original body wagons survived.

Over 200,000 of these wagons were ordered by British Railways, adding to around 100,000 steel bodied mineral wagons built to government orders during and after WW2, making the 16 ton mineral the signature wagon of the British Railways era, with examples still in coal train service until the miners strike of 1984.

Lionheart Trains models have a body made from ABS plastic incorporating fine detailing and fully finished in 1950's, 1960's and 1970's decorations. The chassis contains a die-cast metal floor to add weight, a compensating beam on one side to improve running performance, brass bearings, die-cast wheels with steel tyres, sprung metal buffers, sprung die-cast hook and metal coupling links. Solebars, axleboxes and brake gear components are moulded in ABS plastic for strength.
